I love to make an extra special treat for a special friend who loves his Daflour jam – especially the cherry one!

We’ve had many super-fun nights, and playing wink murder, singing karaoke until our voices were hoarse, and numerous other capers, leading to many laughs and copious consumption of free-from foods!!

Last time was a cherry lemon mousse – whipped up last minute and inspired by my friend’s, and my own, love of Dalfour’s Cherry Jam. Sooooooooooo delectable- it makes anything just that bit more extravagant.

This friend recently moved and so, before he left, a new recipe – including Dalfour cherry jam was clearly required. Of course I used only the best ingredients and if there ever was a slice to be called an indulgent treat, this would be it.
