Clafouti, anyone?

Yesterday I made an experiment dessert and tested it out on the women from Bible Study. It was called Cherry Clafouti and I got it from Simply Recipes. This was the first time we've purchased cherries this year. I managed to resist the urge to just eat the whole bag of them raw. The colour of cherries and cherry juice is almost as good as that of cranberries. Almost. A lot of juice gets splattered when you de-pit cherries. Especially when you're using a chopstick to de-pit. I am a fairly freckled person to begin with, but I added to the collection with some lovely purple freckles courtesy of the cherries. Too bad we didn't get a picture of the finished product. It didn't look quite as good as the recipe picture, I think because we cooked it too long. It was supposed to be a baked custard-like dessert, tasting of cherries and almonds. I think I need to buy a bag of cherries just to eat soon. But I thought it was a little early for cherries yet. I wonder when BC cherries will be ready?
