Cherry Season

Dear Constant reader,

It’s sour cherry season at Stately Babydoll Manor and the orchards are simply dripping with fruit. We’re picking every day and have hardly made a dent.

It’s hard to tell from the photo tell how large the big bowl is, but that’s probably four or five pounds of cherries and it’s so full that there was no room to add the cherries in smaller bowl Scratch is holding.

I’ve been cooking like mad to take advantage of this precious fruit. So far I’ve made:

clafouti

sour cherry flamingo

syrup

sour cherry-rhubarb mousse

crumb cake

I’ll probably make cobbler tonight. There are also cherries drying in the dehydrator and preserves planned soon. Any cherries that don’t used will get frozen. The season is all too short and a little frantic, but so delicious.

Now back to your regularly scheduled burlesque.
