Cherries season is here!! /Cerise season est ici!!

 Such a gorgeous fruit and so prized by those who have access to a tree or three [or 7 in our case] each year. The season is short and labour intensive with plenty of tree climbing, precarious picking, washing, sorting and stoning and bagging to be done
...some for jam and some frozen for cherry sauce to be served with Confit de Canard [Duck Confit]
and some for the infamous pudding Cherry Clafoutis
...and some to be simply preserved in a lemony sugar syrup served at breakfast and eaten with velvety greek yogurt...
 Labour intense but worth it!!
