Author Notes: On a hot summer night when we have a crusty baguette from Mikee the baker and sour cherries, we make these little 'tarts' Inspired by London's River Cafe. They are easy to make and taste surprisingly tart-like. This works well with all stone fruits - apricots, plums, peaches, nectarines.POCKETKnife.life


Serves 6

  • 1 bakery baguette
  • 1 quart sour cherries
  • 8 tablespoons sweet unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons lemon zest
  1. Wash cherries. Remove stems. Pit by forcing a straw through centers (a great trick).
  2. Smash butter and sugar together with lemon zest.
  3. Slice baguette into a dozen pieces.
  4. Spread butter mixture on one side of each baguette slice.
  5. Squash cherries onto each slice.
  6. Arrange on a parchment lined baking sheet (or go bare back).
  7. Toast in 305F oven for about 20-30 minutes - until cherries are baked through and bread is toasted.
  8. Enjoy!
