My last batch of marmalade was a study of the pure taste of Meyer lemons. This fruit is such an enticing mix of sweet and tart that it is an excellent partner as much as a starring ingredient. I was intrigued by Rufus & Clementine’s CherryMeyerGingerLade mixing together Meyer lemons, dried cherries, and fresh ginger. In fact, I was already chopping a handful of dried cherries when I had a moment of inspiration. Back in summer, I squirreled away basket after basket of sour cherries in the freezer, all meticulously pitted by hand to keep them as intact as possible. I had visions of cherry pies in winter when the days are short, a special treat that guarantees to put a huge smile on B’s face. Well, winter is half over (yes!!) and I have yet to deplete my sour cherries supply. Just why exactly would I use dried cherries in a marmalade when I have perfectly juicy ones in the freezer? That’s how my Sour Cherries Meyer Lemon Marmalade came about.
