Cherries are in full season here – red, pink, white, dark red, all sorts of colors are available. My favorites are the Amarena cherries, dark and slightly bitter, with plenty of flesh and juice, the kind of cherries that stain your fingertips and clothes… stains that bring many childhood memories back, the kind of stains that I don’t mind anymore. I loved climbing trees to pick these up when I was a kid and the taste of freshly made cherry jam is something that I will never forget.
I haven’t been writing anything on the blog for a while and I thought it was time to do something about it. I had a few bad weeks, I got a nasty cold and was in bed for way too long, and then the fridge stopped working! For the 2 hottest weeks we’ve had in a long time, I didn’t have a fridge and couldn’t cook as everything would spoil in my greenhouse-like home. We’ve been terrible, we had takeaways, and rubbish food not worth sharing with anyone!
