Cherries

I’ve been on a sour cherry hunt for the past month or so.  I’ve tried every upscale grocery place in Greensboro and nobody ever carries them.  I started looking online to see if I could get some shipped here from a fruit supplier but the only thing I could find were jarred or frozen cherries.  In my online search, I located an orchard an hour north of here and sour cherry picking started yesterday.  And they were expecting 3000 people on opening day.  We were one of the first in line.  This place has 34 acres of cherry trees.  We met folks from NC and Tennessee picking there.  I pitted cherries for 2 hours when we got home.   I so far have made maraschinos and the best cherry pie I’ve ever tasted.  Today’s adventures include cherry liqueur and maybe some black forest preserves.
