Cherries JubileeDo you love cherries and are smitten with Cherries Jubilee? Did you know that it was a special dessert prepared for Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee celebration in 1897?

Since then the dish, made with fresh cherries, liqueur and flambéed, then served over vanilla ice cream, has grown into one of America’s favorite desserts.

I don’t particularly care for this dish, however, I do reach for cherries in the summertime. They’re a nutritious treat.

Cherries can also slow the aging process with the fruit’s strong antioxidants that eliminate different stresses to your body (not unlike watermelon’s anti-aging benefits too), including free radicals.

This summer chomp on cherries to boost heart health (and treat gout, too!).  As a result, you will sleep better, increase potassium levels, reduce inflammation, and finally slow the aging process. You can even freeze cherries for ongoing benefits beyond the summer months.

My bowl full of cherries for July 4 holiday weekend.

    Be still my heart. Eugenia, this outfit is divine. I love every piece worn as you have or as separate pieces.

    • Glenda,
      Hi! Thank you! I took a leap wearing this voluminous top but the encouragement from you and from Instagram help me overcome my resistance to perhaps adding similar tops to my wardrobe. As always, thank you for stopping by The Age of Grace.

    Eugenia, You look gorgeous!

    • Nina,

    Love the crisp white on white on you! The pattern on the bag is the perfect pop of color and a lovely way to add another layer of interest. I love cherries, too, just the way they are.

    • Elle,
      Hello again! I had fun with this outfit. The oversized peplum was out of my comfort zone but happy with the results. I like the summer fabrics and crispness that white offers. I wasn’t sure how the coral shoes would look but as you mentioned, a pop of color always helps to make a statement.
      Yes, cherries, I can’t stop eating them, so yummy?
