Steffen's Cherry Orchard

This morning we did U-pick cherries. We picked four 5-quart buckets with roughly half and half of Montmorency and Balaton varieties. I packed up two five-pound bags for the freezer which will become tart cherry pie filling, three cups in the freezer to make Summer Solstice Preserves when we get more Tree Ripe Blueberries, six dehydrator trays for dried cherries, and a batch of Spirited Cherries. Of course, there were some for snacking, too.Yum!

ETA: picked one more bucket on 7/15/13 for frozen cherries.
