Yesterday the girls and I trekked up to Dole's Orchard for some of whatever might be in season there. They do a pretty big berry and apple-picking business, but we were lucky enough to pick some of these beautiful, super-tart cherries. We brought them home with a bunch of rhubarb and strawberries. We ate just a few of the cherries before cooking the rest into jam. Best right out of the pot, it's like eating cherry pie without the crust. Next: Cherry pie (with the crust).
