Have I mentioned lately that it's hot here? ;) And yet, I was in the mood to bake. That means, of course, firing up the oven and heating up the house. But I had a lot of cherries -- probably the last of the season -- that I'd bought, and I was afraid they'd go bad. So ... I made clafoutis, which is a luscious concoction of cherries (though you can use other fruit, too) and a sort of custard that bakes, puffs and then is devoured with gusto. Of course, you can't let gusto get the best of you, since the cherries still have their pits! ;) Pitting them makes too much of their juice bleed out all over the custard-y part. Yum! I can hardly wait!
