Never Enough Cherries

leave a comment »

I couldn’t stand it.
Before leaving town on Saturday, I raced downtown to Union Square and bought a flat of cherries to join the first two quarts I bought on Friday. Six quarts remained behind in Harlem. Four quarts drove with Mike, Whiskey, two pounds of butter, a bottle of whiskey and a rolling pin up to The Barn.

Baked after mushrooming and a visit to the lake, and preceded by a crazy dinner foraged from the forest and fridge, this first pie of the year was eaten still warm by Amy, Ben, Kate, Joan, Sophie, and Mike.

Then eaten with flowers for dinner the next day with Clare.

The third day it rose again to be eaten by Nadine and Damien as a post mycological snack while the second pie baked.
