The time when Northwest Cherry Growers send me a big box of the most beautiful cherries you have ever seen. They are almost too beautiful to eat. But I force myself.

Strawberry-Raspberry Honey Syrup

Fig Jam with Anise Recipe

Indulge in a Mediterranean treat with homemade fig jam.   I love fresh figs. Good ones. Nice ripe, juicy, figs. Soft to the bite, but rich in flavor. Similar to a date, but less heavy. Figs are native to the Mediterranean region, and even grow in several places here in the U.S. But not in […]
