Lazy, Rustic, Haphazard, and Amazing Sour Cherry Pies

Lazy, Rustic, Haphazard, and Amazing Sour Cherry Pies

I’ve gotten seriously lazy with my sour cherry pies. I make at least half a dozen every year, or my father sulks. It’s just one of those things. The tree is ready in mid-June, so everyone gathers together to pick, pit, barbecue, and eat. I’ve learned to make the crust dough in advance at home […]

Sour Cherry Coffee Cake

Sour Cherry Coffee Cake

I’m in Portland right now, but I made this sour cherry coffee cake not long before I left Brooklyn, with sour cherries we picked from my father’s tree. Bonnie helped us pick the first round of cherries off the tree, It was a 4-foot-all dwarf tree when my parents first bought it, but now it […]

Almond Buttermilk Biscuits with Sour Cherry Compote, Butterscotch, and Candied Pickled Ginger

Almond Buttermilk Biscuits with Sour Cherry Compote, Butterscotch, and Candied Pickled Ginger

This dessert is entirely Dave’s creation. He calls it CBGB (cherries, biscuits, ginger, and butterscotch), but I just can’t bring myself to call it that, personally. I prefer recipe names that really warn you about what you’re getting yourself into. It’s a due process issue, as far as I’m concerned – when I skim through […]

Sour Cherry Braised Lamb Shanks

Sour Cherry Braised Lamb Shanks

And now we return to your regularly scheduled LambBlog. (It’s just that lamb is so cute and so tasty!) The sour cherry braising sauce is sort of sweet and sour and spicy and very rich. It is based on our homemade sour cherry sage flower jam, though you could probably substitute sour cherries, sage, and […]

Dave’s Sour Cherry Barbecue Sauce and Baby Back Ribs

Dave’s Sour Cherry Barbecue Sauce and Baby Back Ribs

I took no part in cooking this meal. Me, I’m just the scribe and photographer this time. The ribs were experimental meats purchased in Brooklyn’s Chinatown. The sour cherries come from my parents’ sour cherry tree, and I did help with the picking and pitting. We made most of them into jam and pie and […]

Sour Cherry Almond Milk Sorbet

Sour Cherry Almond Milk Sorbet

No story here. Just another photo taken in my parents’ kitchen, and the perfect way to finish off the last sour cherries of the year. The first thing to hit your tongue here is the sour!, and then mostly smooth almond, until a lingering aftertaste of pure, tart cherry sweeps in.

Sour Cherry Sage Flower Jam

Sour Cherry Sage Flower Jam

As soon as I saw the flowering sage at the farmer’s market, I just knew I had to use it in my entry for The Spice is Right #3: The Perfumed Garden, which called for us to use edible flowers in our cooking. And as I was saying, I have this extreme overabundance of sour […]

Sour Cherry Pie (Old Version)

Sour Cherry Pie (Old Version)

My father planted a sour cherry tree by the side of the house a few years back, and every year he insists that I make him a sour cherry pie. The deal has always been that my brother picks the cherries and I pit and bake the cherries. The tree has grown enormously in the […]
