“My husband comes from Traverse City, Michigan, cherry capital of the world. Fresh sweet cherries are plentiful in late June and July. This is a delightful dessert that is great by itself, with creme fraiche, or over vanilla ice cream or pound cake. You can keep it on hand for up to 6 months in your refrigerator. Prep time includes chill time.”
