This recipe for Nutty Blonde Cherry Jam is lighthearted and lovable, the small bits of sweet candied almond bits providing an off-kilter eccentricity that makes it all the more adorable.
And after all, blondes do have more fun — blonde cherries included.
As for flavor, it’s akin to Alicia Silverstone’s analysis of her hit film Clueless: “I think that the film was very deep. I think it was deep in the way that it was very light. I think lightness has to come from a very deep place if it’s true lightness.”
Nutty Blonde Cherry Jam — true lightness that comes from a very deep place. The depth in this case is provided by the lightly browned sugar coating the caramelized almond slices, adding surprising little bursts of crunch.
