Introducing "Mystery Ingredient Mondays"

I've linked to Anne at The Bazin Chronicles and my SIL Tasha over at A Clan's Tale before.

The three of us are going to play a little blogging game.



Tasha had this fun idea in which we take turns playing Iron Chef.  Every week or so, one of us announces the Mystery Ingredient.   Then next Monday, we share how we used the Mystery Ingredient (MI) in our own kitchens while the next sister-blogger announce the next ingredient.

You can play along too!

I'm the oldest so I get to go first.


CHERRIES!

Calah has been scarfing these down, and they are in season somewhere warm.  (We had a low of 46! last night, in JUNE?!)

Raw tree fruits make my mouth itch.  But these taste so good,  the swollen lips and sore throat don't phase me.


Or I could avoid the reaction and cook them.  The Chicago Tribune profiled Cherry Clafoutis a few weeks ago, so I've had cherries on my radar for a while now.



Clafoutis!  That's fun to say.  Time will tell if that's what I actually do with the MI, eating them raw could count.  Right, Tasha?  You said and I quote, "No rules."

So hop around to Tasha's and Anne's sites, and leave a comment if you'd like to participate.  (Then we might actually spring for inlinkz.)

Next Monday, we will be sharing what we did with cherry-stained hands and mouths.

Bon Appetit!

  1. Oh! I'm in! Can't wait!
    Do they have to be fresh cherries? Can they be canned? Can it be a recipe we've already tried, or should we branch out and try something new?

    1. No rules! You can use any form of cherry you like. Cherry jello, ice cream, dried cherry, cherry Coke....

  2. Me too! I've been wanting to try a particular recipe and this is the PERFECT excuse to do it.

  3. I love this idea; I'll definitely be following your series! Hopefully no one chooses, like, octopus in real Iron Chef style...

  5. I don't even think you can perfect a fresh cherry! I haven't met a cherry recipe that I like but I love them raw and unadulterated :) I will be interested to see the results!!
