...make Cherry Pie Filling!!
I was thrilled to order some organic cherries from a local farmer. The order came in when I was out of town, but I thought for sure they would be fine until I got back. Unfortunately, I was wrong. It's been so hot here that the cherries barely made it. They were so ripe. I was sad that I wouldn't have any for my salads or just to eat--they needed to be dealt with right away. Not one to cry over over-ripe cherries, I decided to roll up my sleeves and with the help of Mandy, we turned those super ripe cherries into yummy cherry-almond pie filling. (PickYourOwn.org has a great recipe with pictures!) Now I have pie filling to last me through the year and with a little paper and ribbon, a few housewarming gifts on hand, too. Thank goodness for wonderful friends like Mandy and Google for instant cherry pie filling recipes.
