CHERRY CLAFOUTIS

Holiday season is just around the corner, and @therese.spoon has crafted a delightful Cherry Clafoutis recipe that is sure to be a perfect addition to your holiday spreads. This classic French-style dessert seamlessly blends the fluffiness of pancakes with the fruity richness of flan.
Make it even more special by using our perfectly imperfect rescued cherries! These cherries, rejected by supermarkets for not meeting strict beauty standards, are bound for the landfill. Shockingly, in 2023 alone, an estimated 15% of total cherry production will be discarded in the paddock, contributing to the alarming food waste crisis.
