Another fruit I am trying to eat as much as possible these days is sour cherries. The frozen stuff that I use throughout winter never comes close to these delicate berries. In addition to preserving some of them to enjoy for a couple more months and the occasional sour cherry sherbet, another recipe I am quite fond of is an adaptation of the Cherry Frangipane Galette from ...
