While you are enjoying this bowl of cherries, why not keep the stems? Later on the stems will make you a mild-tasting detox tea, a laxative and excellent for the treatment of urinary tract infections and (or) bloating.
You can also combine this tea with some green tea if you wish.
- Gather all the cherry stems; spread out on a cookie sheet and leave to dry in a dark and dry place a few days. When ready to use, place the required quantity in a bowl of water overnight (12 hours). The next day, boil for 10 minutes and set aside for 20 minutes. Strain and drink (with sweetener if you wish), hot or cold, three times a day, after each meal.
