I came home to find my computer locked up with viruses, my email program crashed, and I was unable to update my blog. But the baking went on!! Here's a thumbnail sketch of what has kept me busy while Smitty rebuilt my laptop:
The recipe is from the Bread Bible. This is the first time I had made it.
I purchased tart cherry juice--note that the label says "from concentrate!"--and boiled it down to a syrup. The result is amazing! I added it to the pie filling as if it were the one Rose specified. I am thrilled with the results! I froze the leftover syrup for future pies. Surprisingly, it didn't freeze solid, but remains a thick liquid in the freezer.
But guess what--I actually have one! All this time I called it my zig-zag pastry cutter wheel, or even a pinking wheel--as in pinking shears (think those scissors that make zig-zag cuts to finish fabric edges).
Stay tuned for a separate blog post about this! For now, let me say that they were DELICIOUS! Find the recipe in the Bread Bible.
I really appreciate your comments! Thanks so much for visiting my blog!
