I made a discovery today.
In our freezer.
1st week of Winter in the Southern Hemisphere.
I had black cherries.
Earlier this year I mentioned I had been the fortunate recipient of a glut of black cherries from one of our customers and that I'd frozen them whole as an experiment rather than waste them. I have been eating them frozen like little cherry ice blocks, but it's got a bit cool for that now. My tummy still hasn't recovered fully from it's skirmish with a bug earlier this week and I thought I'd make it double beneficial. I got a pack of the cherries from the freezer and let them thaw. I then took out the pips [pits], that was messy [no Jim I didn't eat them]. I then blended them with my blender stick and poured them over a bowl of natural yoghurt. Great a double beneficial snack. It tasted great and got me thinking. I don't know when you northerners have your cherry season, but pop a few in the freezer whole to have in Autumn or Winter. Blended and heated gently they would also make a great dessert topping.
I've recently planted this years crop of broad [fava] beans and also in the freezer is last years crop. I often have them heated as a quick afternoon snack at the weekend, but we are in the middle of apple muffin season at the moment and the beans have been temporarily forgotten.
So much food...........................So little time.
