Last week at the farmer's market, I picked up some sour cherries. It was my first time trying them and, although at first taste they didn't seem too sour, their tartness really started to kick in after a few bites. To tone that down a bit, I decided to try making them into a mini-crisp using the same method that I've done before with blueberries.
I simply sprinkled the cherries with sugar and lemon juice, then topped them with a mixture of oats, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and melted butter and microwaved for just over a minute. The flavor combination was great, despite the fact that the end result turned out a bit messy. Notice the paper towel in that picture? That's from the cherries exploding all over the microwave. Definitely keep your eye on it while it cooks if you try this one at home!
