Aside from the gorgeous weather and all the fun, summery things that go along with warm days – trips to the lake and barbeques – there are also lots of great things happening downtown in Victoria and right here in the store this weekend.
It almost sounds too good to be true doesn’t it? One of the bigger trends in bread-making over the past few of years has been no-knead bread. I have friends who’ve tried it, family members who have raved about it and we’ve even written about it in past CC newsletters – but it wasn’t until this past week that I tried it for myself.
Last summer, I inherited an old family heirloom – my grandmother’s cherry pitter. Each summer, my grandmother would patiently wash, pit and turn the bounty of cherries growing in the backyard into homemade preserves and pies for her family. She was known for canning large jars of whole pitted cherries as well as for her cherry pies - and the light, flaky crusts that always turned out so perfectly.
