Cherries

It’s cherry season!!  One of my favorite fruits.  Too bad hubby doesn’t share my enthusiasm. 

One of the stores in the area had an awesome sale on bing cherries so,of course, I stocked up.  To the tune of 20 pounds.  Now what to do with all that cherry goodness?

I will be canning up whole, pitted cherries in sugar syrup.  Since I’m the only one who likes them I’ll only be doing about 9 pints.  Then I’ll dehydrate some for use in granola and eating later.  Next, I’ll be making a few quarts of cherry cordial.

A quart jar, a cup of sugar, pitted cherries, vodka or brandy, and a few weeks and I will  have a wonderful cherry-flavored liquer.  Yum!

And last, but certainly not least, whatever is left from canning, dehydrating, and cordialing will simply be eaten out of hand.  Oh yay.

Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend.
