Life's a Bowl of Cherries

As I mentioned yesterday I bought two 5 gallon buckets of sweet cherries. 

Last night I sorted and washed them. 

Today I bagged up 23 quarts of them to freeze. 

 I don't pit them we just eat them partially frozen and spit out the pits like you would do when they are fresh. 

 This is a favorite evening snack for our family in the fall and winter months when fresh fruit is not readily available.

 The rest of them I put in a clean drawer in my fridge for a healthy snack.

  1. Those look so delicious! We have that kind of cherries here, but not the tart cherries.

  2. Emma-I thought of you when I was bagging up the cherries. It's almost mind boggling to think of you going into winter when I'm in the thick of gardening! I didn't do any tart cherries this year. Had some left from last year.

  3. hi rebecca,
    mmmh cherries...summer pur in the wintertime.
    have a nice week,

  4. Wow. Cherries cost an arm and a leg around here. What an excellent winter treat that would be. My mouth is watering.
