A simple recipe/method, which my very elderly French neighbour gave to me when I lived in the Poitou region of France – she had about a dozen cherry trees. The French drink this herbal "Tisane" regularly, especially ladies who diet, as the cherry stalk is known to help elimination and reduce water retention! The cherry stalks/stems contain potassium, salts and tannin, and it is known as a powerful diuretic. It is also used for preventing urinary tract infections. It is drunk by steeping the cherry stems in boiling water, and can be drunk hot or cold - with or without sugar. It has a fruity-woody flavour, and is a very refreshing drink.
