Cherry and Apple Clafoutis

July 10, 2009

This is a variation on a local dish (cherry Clafoutis). We have recently invested in a dehydrator so are making use of cherry season at the moment by buying lots while they are cheap and then drying them out. We have then been experimenting with soaking them in Pineau des Charantes for around 5 days, and have discovered that using those cherries in this dish makes it even more fantastic. You could serve the now cherry flavoured Pineau with the clafoutis, or just keep it as a treat for the chef!
