Griottes - Early in the Season Yet

These are griottes, a sour cherry used a lot in preserves, sauces, and chutneys for sucré-salé dishes, dishes that incorporate staid savory flavors and textures with sweet accompaniments. When combined together with just the proper level of restraint, the complimentary qualities can really heighten the enjoyment of a dish.

There are many classic combinations to choose from should you decide to try a
sucré-salé dish at home.

We have a sour cherry tree. Even the birds don't touch them but I have never been able to find a recipe - now that I know they are 'griottes' it will be easier...
Thank you, thank you!
