Cherry season is here! How do I know? Because I have bowls and bowls of cherries picked from our tree in the front yard. I wait and wait for that deep red (which is like 9 hours of sunshine after they start turning pale red), then I race out there and get them before the birds do.
Our tree is tall, so until I rent a cherry picker I am leaving the birds enough anyway – they possess the wonder of flight, so I kindly ask them to dine on the top shelf fruit.
While I sit here pitting and eating, pitting and canning, pitting and eating, I am planning. I have a few new recipe ideas, one I have already started on. Until I can share those, I am sharing my last two seasons of cherry creations.
have any cherry recipes to share? please link up in comments!
