Fresh Michigan Cherries

It’s Cherry picking time here in Michigan, and we are lucky enough
to have friend with trees that are loaded.
We have a fruit orchard that we planted here on our property 3 years ago, but the trees are not mature enough to be producing fruit yet.
 Lucky for us our friends sent out a message to come pick before the birds got them all. 
Hubby did all the picking, brought them home and washed and remove the pits.  We ate several and before they went bad we made the rest into
cherry jam.  
It will taste delicious this winter on warm bread.

  3. We used to live in Boise, Idaho, and loved going to the orchards to pick fruit – cherries and peaches especially! At pennies per pound I would be able to can many jars of fruit for the winter. My husband called canned cherries “bone sauce” – an old midwestern term 🙂

  4. Hi Dawn! Oh, I love cherries and these are just gorgeous! Are they as sweet as they look?

    Maybe I should add a few more on the porch (tried with a couple).
