Martha Stewart Living Sour Cherry and Rosemary Focaccia
This recipe has eight ingredients and takes 6 hours and ten minutes to prep and bake. I did make a major modification to the recipe, I used sweet cherries, not sour cherries. Honestly, I have never seen fresh sour cherries around here, so I used what I had available locally. The dough is pretty sticky during the first few kneads, but I resisted adding a lot of flour and only added enough so my hands didn't completely stick. I followed the remainder of the recipe as written.
I haven't made focaccia in about 10 years, so I wasn't sure how this bread would turn out, but it was perfect. I was very pleased with how the bread tasted and it looked great. My five-year-old fell in love with this bread and ate almost half the loaf by himself. My husband and I loved how airy and light the focaccia turned out, it was well worth the 6 hours of work. This recipe is a great way to use fresh cherries and made a truly delicious bread.
