I went to Northiam this morning to pick the crop from the cherry tree we rent there (The Telegraph Magazine had a lovely feature about the orchard last Saturday). We had planned to go on Sunday, but with the possibility of heavy rain tomorrow there is the danger that the ripe cherries will split. If the forecast rain does arrive tomorrow I can spend the day freezing and bottling what we won’t eat fresh in the next few days. Cherry clafoutis is a must.
