a Cherry picking weekend...

Its Cherry season again!
We spent a wonderful weekend away with family and friends heading out of Sydney and onto Cowra - we stayed in Cowra overnight and on Sunday morning we all got up early and headed further inland to Young, Australia's Cherry capital! ...we stopped at a local bakery for breakfast and then straight onto the farms as they predicted a scorching hot day!
The outskirts of the town are full of stone fruit farms - Its always a treat to pick your own cherries...so fresh!  So sweet!  We even got apricots too (my fav fruit!)
The kids had a ball and we left before the heat really kicked in arriving back home with enough time to relax before the start of a new week!
Today I made a Cherry Clafoutis -  I used this recipe  but my oven has been playing up so I had to bake it for twice as long as the recipe stated ...it was really yummy!

  5. Oh my youngest daughter and I went cherry picking with some friends last year and had such a fun day. Your clafoutis looks amazing Anastasia, would love some with cream poured all over it! Sounds like such a great weekend you all had, makes me look forward to summer and the lovely weather to do things like this.
