The golden and delectably healthful home-farmed egg

Chickens mill around in the grass next to a basket of freshly gathered eggs at a small organic farm.
The omega 3 fatty acids – the “good” fat – is abundant in fresh eggs from foraging chickens.
Clafouti of Cherries

Here’s a delightful easy and fast summer breakfast dish. It also works as a dessert after a light meal. It’s from the 1970’s classic cookbook by Anna Thomas, The Vegetarian Epicure. Make it with locally grown eggs and you will marvel at its simple beauty and taste.A clafouti is a simple pudding, similar to a pancake batter, poured over fruit and baked.Ingredients4 eggs1 C flour2 C warm milk¾ C sugar2 Tbsp melted butter plus 1-2 Tbsp for panpinch salt1 pound sweet dark cherries, washed, stemmed, pitted, and cut in half2 Tbsp kirsch, a cherry liqueur (optional) You may also use almond extract.DirectionsPreheat the oven to 425.
Beat the eggs lightly while gradually stirring in the flour.
When the mixture is smooth, beat in the milk, sugar, melted butter, kirsch, and salt.
Generously butter a shallow baking dish or pie plate.
Pour a very thin layer of the batter across the bottom of it.
Put it in the hot over for 2-3 minutes, or just long enough for the batter to begin to set.
Arrange the pitted cherries evenly over the layer of batter and pour the remaining batter over them.
Reduce the heat to 400 and bake for about 30-35 minutes until golden brown and slightly puffed. The center should look slightly wet but not jiggly. (It will continue to cook out of the oven.)
Check it once or twice during the cooking. If large bubbles form causing it to puff unevenly, pierce the bubble with a skewer or fork.
Sprinkle with sieved confectioner’s sugar and serve hot or warm.
An optional treat: Pour cold heavy cream over the individual slices.
