Back from France

Paris France: look at all that amazing fruit

I am fresh home from France but back to work.  My "work" is also my love so it is actually exciting to me.  I went to the Echo Park Farmers Market yesterday and bought some AMAZING cherries from one of my favorite farmers Tony Balderama.  His family farm has been growing cherries and citrus (and a few plums) for over 80 years.  He is amazing and so sweet to talk to.  I bought a case this week for experimenting.

Today I made spiced cherry jam with a little splash of amaretto.  On Saturday mornings boozy coffee is the ONLY way to go!  And if I have it in my jam - it's usually in my coffee, ha ha.
