Needless to say, I spent the following week in the kitchen, choosing the best, fattest, juiciest cherries for cherry preserves and halving and stoning the rest for cherry jam.
|I learnt last year that if you pick cherries, pick 'em with the stem attached. They will last longer and won't spoil.|
|Nine large jars of preserved cherries. Eat them cold during the summer or warm them up for a cozy winter snack!|
|I had to ask Hubby to pick some more the following week so that I could bake a cherry pie for him as an anniversary gift. He didn't know, of course, he just knew he had to pick some more because I'd used all of the cherries for preserves and jam.|
