Cherries, Apricots, Blackberries

There were predictions of scant regional cherry availability but we've had plenty of the local crop.

Conditions out west must have been perfect because markets everywhere were featuring big, plump fresh juicy and high quality (brix 18) cherries. Perfect looking NW USA were $1.99/# at WFM Friday Special. Super Fresh had beauties for $2.99/#.

I like the Grande ricotta product called Del Pastio  This time though, on the advice of a skilled Italian baker, I switched to Calabro.  Fantastico. This cheese is available at Salumeria in RTM
Vanilla pastry cream, black raspberry eclair
 Vanilla pastry cream with fine black raspberries from FairFood Farm Stand
Vanilla Ricotta, Apricot Cherry Tartlet

 There is a pool of delicious fresh apricot inside the pastry shell.
