Today, I'm sharing with you a cherry mousse recipe, because you know I love cherries. :-) If they are not quite in season yet in your state, fear not, this recipe actually calls for canned cherries. There are only 4 ingredients, and if you use a can of whipped cream, you'll save yourself a step. Where Mrs. Elasky tells you to pack it in ice and salt, just place it in that "new invention" called a freezer. ;-) And in case any of you are wondering about the salt, that was just to make the ice colder.
