Sour Cherry Pie
If I was offered one kind of pie on my deathbed, this is the one I would choose—a bold statement from a cook who writes a column entitled "Pie of the Week".
Sour cherries are practically inedible when taken raw and difficult to source outside a farmers' market. The sense of victory you feel once you've sought them out, combined with the satisfaction of (finally!) getting through the tedious job of pitting them makes the resulting pie all the more sweet.
