Picture it - Spencer Hill,Grand Forks 1979. It is a hot spring day in the Sunshine Valley but we are sitting in a cool kitchen enjoying kalachi (sour cream cookies) with a bowl of home-preserved cherries. The combination of fluffy cookie with the sweet, juicy cherries is out of this world. I help myself to more, unashamedly dunking my kalachi into the cherry juice not even caring as the juice runs down my chin. Have more they say and I do.
