With this terrible heatwave through the Midwest (and much of the country) I’ve had to start my oven hiatus. The temperature inside our house has reached at least 90 every day for the last two weeks. Finally, I decided that it probably couldn’t get much hotter so I turned the oven on to roast some cherries and make Jeni’s Goat Cheese Ice Cream with Roasted Red Cherries.
Well, ten minutes into the roasting I smelled something burning. I opened the oven to see the cherries bubbling over and small fires on the bottom of the oven. The cherries ended up okay, but oven needs a good scraping and my baking dish is now candy-coated.
