Got leftover Christmas ham?
A clafoutis is, traditionally, a sweetened batter, similar to a popover / Yorkshire pudding batter, poured over stone fruit (cherries, peaches, apricots) and baked – a summer dessert here in France.
This is savory.
One could call it a Yorkshire Pudding Pie – and I have in the past. But then people (Brits) expect Toad in the Hole, which this isn’t.
It’s my blog – so this is a savory clafoutis.

It was sunny the other day.
I took myself for a nice long walk.
On my way home a tractor hauling a load of, uh, horse manure past by me.
The driver, a friend who has horses, smiled, waved, and said: ‘Want some?’
I said sure…..
So…. After my 10km (6mi) morning walk I spent the afternoon shoveling, uh, horse muck.
It was well-rotted (they said) so it was easy to shovel (they said).
It was a lovely, warm, sunny day.
One could say that I received the gift that keeps on giving.
My vegetables will be very happy next spring.
