I have some cherries left over from our Washington DC Food52 canning event he held over the weekend -- as well as some jars. So I'd be happy to put them to use in this recipe, but it's like a 30 hour process from the get go, so I'll need to push the deadline into Wednesday AM. I'll likely get started on this -- have to pit the cherries anyway -- and you can let me know if you'll excpet the late review.

Whoops, I just read the recipe in it's entirity and these need to sit in the basement once processed for 6 weeks. I'm willing to make them and reserve judgement until then. Does that work?
Heena July 2, 2010
EP is a new abbreviation I'm in love with. Thanks everyone!
lapadia July 2, 2010
Thanks for the EP recognition, I love yeast baking and sharing recipes with everyone! NOTE: I won’t be able to cook for a little while because of a fractured right shoulder…so have fun everybody. Luckily I already had my recipe(s) for next week, just need to type it up – FYI, I just typed this with one finger on my left hand…yikes!
Heena July 2, 2010
So sorry to hear about your shoulder. You should assume a commanding position on a high stool and direct your troops around the kitchen. I hope you feel better.
monkeymom July 2, 2010
Yikes indeed! I hope you aren't in too much pain and that you feel better very soon. I'll miss your recipes!
Food52 July 2, 2010
Feel better soon, lapadia. You're such a trooper!
Sagegreen July 2, 2010
I hope you have some good folks around to help you with your recovery. It sounds like you are usually helping others! Take good care.
fiveandspice July 2, 2010
Here's to super speedy recoveries. (Also, very impressive typeing!)
gingerroot July 1, 2010
I concur with Sagegreen. Thank you so much for choosing my sorbet! I'm glad it passed your kid test, Amanda!

Thanks for testing! So glad you enjoyed it. ; )

I"m sure my dinner guests on Saturday will enjoy it too. I bought my milk for that batch at a local farm so I am curious if the $7 per 1/2/gallon I paid for that is going to make a difference or not.
