Well, I love cherries and I have fond memories of eating nearly an entire bucket full one Christmas while on a family holiday in Lowburn in the South Island of New Zealand. This is the "old" Lowburn, right by the river before it got flooded to become part of the Clyde Dam. The cherries were hand picked by me from the farm next to the camp ground we were staying at.
Anyway since then whenever I see them I can't help but treat myself. So a couple of weeks ago at the market I was so pleased to bag half a kilo for 2 euro. 4 euro a kilo, that is sooo... cheap, they are about 19NZ$ a kilo from memory. I thought briefly about making the clafoutis, but couldn't bring myself to cook them as it seems such a waste to me. So today whilst getting our bread from the boulangerie in Villefranche there on the counter was Cerise clafoutis on sale for 80c a piece. Easy, so now I have tried it, and yes it was nice but I am pleased I ate my cherries "au naturel".
