Magickal Aspects of Cherry from The Magick Kitchen

When I think of Cherry, my taste buds jump with excitement. It’s the anticipation of the sweet delicious taste of juicy fresh Cherries. YUM!

Cherry is one of my absolute favorite foods. Packed with vitamins and nutrients, Cherries are probably one of the best fruits out there for every appetite. Now, I understand there are some out there who detest the flavor of Cherry. It’s okay… I will not judge you… Everyone is entitled to their opinion… I suppose.

Of course I am joking. My husband hates cherries, and most fruit for that matter. So, even those who hate such delicious flavors are still lovable people.

Since prehistoric times, sweet cherries have been indigenous to most of Europe, some of North Africa and Western Asia. The Pits of cherries have been found in settlements dating back to 2000BCE. By 800BCE their cultivation was found in Asia, and not long after, in Greece.

Cherries have flavored a variety of foods and treats from wine to candy, and offer us a bit of love when needed. Cherry has been used to attract and stimulate love for centuries. One tradition involves tying a strand of your hair to a cherry tree as it blossoms to attract love to you.

I like to stick with the methods that are more practical and of course, tasty! At the end of this post I offer you a simple and elegant recipe for you and your love to share!

I just want good food and to live a Magickal life! Is that so much to ask?After many years of study, struggle, and disappointment; I realize that I could forge my own path using the knowledge I gained, and the simplest of techniques. Through persistence I found the honest answer... I can have both!
I love food and everything that goes with it. I have spent more than 35 years in the kitchen, enjoying every minute of it. Okay… well, enjoying nearly every minute of it.
In addition, I have disbursed nearly as many years studying Wicca, Witchcraft, and Paganism. Combining these two interests has created a Magickal path where food, spirituality play brilliantly together.
My love of whole healthy foods, and unique recipes has also lead me to help run a local teen cooking program, where I teach kids valuable life skills in the kitchen. In addition, I teach different cooking classes for adults on subjects of making the time spent in the kitchen more enjoyable and efficient, recipe creation, and how to make cooking a part of your Magickal and spiritual practice.
From this, The Magick Kitchen was born. My journey with you is about developing a spiritual experience with food, far beyond the dull habit of consumption. We have a marvelous opportunity here to take a most basic-mundane task and make it Magickal!

  1. When it says 🍒 can be used in divination does that mean the seed . if so how do i use them
    • Often Cherry is present during Divination. You can also brew tea to drink before a reading. The pit and leaves can be dried then ground for incense. The particular part you use and the method of how you use it will depend on your preferences, path, and your experience with the plant.
