Life is just a bowl of cherries
More cherries with much gratitude from Stonecrest orchardists our generous neighbours. I spent a quiet afternoon pitting and delighting myself with my pretend post massacre blood red hands all for a batch of poaching in cardamon and vanilla. The recipe I found was a bit part of a french dessert involving sables and some patissiere creme magic that was so not going to happen with any success in my kitchen. Besides, biting into a thin butter biscuit with a fancy cream filling topped with poached cherries would require a bucket of paper napkins and the pressure washer from the shed.
