cherry bomb

CHERRY BOMB. Cherries are in season here in full force! And that is a very good sign!!

picking cherriesThe other day, HEIDI and I went foraging for cherries in the city. There was a tree that she knew of (in a secret location). It was timed PERFECTLY. We couldn’t have picked a better day. They were perfectly ripe and SO ABUNDANT.  Here’s a pic of Heidi in the tree.

bowl cherriesWe picked about TEN POUNDS of perfect cherries. Rainier and Bing Cherries! And they were so much better than the store.  So we made some raw cherry jam.  I remembered reading this recipe on ANTHONY’S BLOG eons ago, and it came in really handy.  It was really tasty, and we didn’t add anything.  Just Cherries.

Speaking of cherries, I should mention that I won’t be posting for a few weeks.  My band (not  THE CHERRY BOMBS, but close)  is playing a short tour on the West Coast.  The dates are HERE.  I think I’m finally going to meet DEBBIE and go to AU LAC.  I’ll let you know how it goes…Wish me luck! :)
