If you've never had homemade focaccia, you're in for something special. This sweet one, sprinkled with rosemary, isn't overly doughy and has an amazingly crisp crust. The bread isn't difficult to make, but it does take time. And don't worry if the dough seems loose as you work with it; that's how it should be.
I found this recipe when trying to use up some sour cherries from a tree in my yard. I cut the salt down to about a teaspoon at the suggestion of other reviewers. Yes, it does take some time, but this bread is totally worth it. It seemed like a strange combination but it's really remarkable, and also, just a good focaccia recipe in itself. Definitely worth a try.
This bread was way too salty. Great combo used to top it but the salt overpowered the cherry, sugar, rosemary topping. Really great crispness to the bread. Might try it again with half the salt. It was disappointing to invest so much time and then be overwhelmed by salt.
This sounds like a strange combination, but it's absolutely wonderful! Not too sweet. And the focaccia recipe is so good that this is now my go-to recipe for rosemary focaccia (just leave out the cherries and use sea salt instead of sanding sugar).
