Canning Cherries

Through the generosity of our neighbor lady we were offered some cherries that we could pick and can for our family. As you can see there was an abundance of cherries on the trees.
Picking was lots of fun. It didn't take very long to get one pail full.
The branches were hanging so full and heavy.

Picking high and low.

The brightness of these cherries make them look very delicious and yummy to eat. But look out,they are actually quite sour. Now that we have them picked the pitting begins. Raymond is hard at it. What a rewarding feeling to have the filling all ready for those pies. Ready to enjoy during the winter months.
