You turned on your oven?You are a fearless kitchen warrior.xoxo J.
You've just warmed us up nicely in 'chilly again' Cape Town x
cherry pie. Cold?
Where's the ice cream! Yummy!
I want to sink my choppers into that cherry pie, not ladylike I know, but there we are! Your food has that effect on me, that 'I need that NOW" effect. I will be ever grateful to you for the midsummer cake. Midsummer, ha, time for cake!
Your photos are fabulous! And RED HOT it is,no matter what part of the country you are in. Come to Florida to cool off...
It NEEDS custard.I read about the heatwave. Enjoy the warm evenings sipping something cold.
Sniff, you haven't posted the pie recipe yet.Can you imagine today with no air conditioning?
Jane, no! Cold pie.Karen, yes, please, take some...Frank, Yes sir, cold pie sir.Rachelle. That was in the 2nd pic!Belinda, choppers. Haven't heard that for so long, no - thank you, it's a good compliment. I know... that cake. Lola, thank you! It's so funny that Florida seems cool right now :-)Rob! - you are right. Custard, one has forgotten about custard. Oh, Pam - it's easy. Use the pastry recipe at (the Food). And pit enough cherries to fill the pie, I used 2 1/2 lbs. Add some sugar to them (only about 1/4 cup), bring to a simmer, let the juice cook out for five minutes at a simmer. Strain. Line spring form with pastry, put in (cool) cherries, cover with pastry lid, poke holes, bake at 350 for about 35 minutes. Use juice for something else (drinks?).No airconditioning? WHY?
