Cherry, Cherry...


My wonderful mom gave me a box full of incredibly juicy cherries not too long back. I took out my handy pitter and spent an evening covered in sticky sweetness. Excited at the prospect of frozen cherries at my disposal, I filled 3 1-gallon Ziploc freezer bags full. We eat them straight out of the bag. We make smoothies. We try out the sorbet, substituting cherries for strawberries. We are looking for a good cherry jam recipe, as the last one we used was a thumbs-down.
We love cherries, even the ones whose pits seem to remain despite our best efforts.
Do you have any good cherry recipes? Let us know.

Loads of cherry recipes at this site:

I recently blogged about them myself. I just picked up a couple of quarts of tarts this weekend. Found your blog when Book of Yum mentioned you on her blog.
