Cherry season it is. A week ago the cherry season was only starting and the cherries weren’t ripe. But we were eager and the cherries tasted very good already so we decided to start the picking season early. We have been eating cherries like crazy this past week. Every time we walk into the garden we take a detour to the trees to pick a handful to keep us company in the garden. When we go out somewhere and take the car, we pick a bag, to go along with us for a small picnic we might have. I have also made cherry popsicles which were a big success. The first thing I made last week was some cherry jam. We opened the jar today for the first time and it was instant success!
The cherry trees are bringing us much joy these days. We already harvested twice a big harvest and looking at how much more the tree holds I decided to do some experimenting on how to preserve the cherries for later on this year. But at the same time to see if I can make many different things from the cherries. Prepare yourself for a handful of cherry recipes the upcoming weeks. I have a confiture, ice cream from the cherry pits and cherry juice in the planning. But today we start with a healthy very easy to make cherry popsicle.
