Hello everyone! I'm sorry it has taken me sooooooo long to post pictures
of my cherry adventure from a few weeks ago. Each time I visit my parents' place it seems there is a different fruit or vegetable that is ripe and ready to be harvested. This particular visit presented a wonderful gift:
If you aren't familiar with this type of cherry I should tell you that they are NOT SWEET, but quite tart. They are perfect for pies! Do you have to add much sugar when making the pie filling you might be asking yourself?? Yes, but it is worth it!
Avery helped me pit them...she did a fantastic job! I'm always surprised at her eagerness in helping me whenever I'm working with fruit. She is a great little helper.
Isn't this little pitter (cherry stoner) the niftiest thing you've ever seen?? The only problem it presented was that it wasted a lot of juice, as you can see in the bowl. I couldn't let it go to waste so I used it to make the most delectable treat. Can you guess what it was???
Tart cherry syrup over vanilla ice cream and brownies!
Let me tell you--if I owned a restaurant this little treat would be at the top of the dessert list! If you have your own pie cherries and you want to try your hand at this, all you have to do is bring the juice to a boil and add sugar. It's that simple!
And ohhhhhhhh so good!
Is it already Wednesday?!? Yay! We're half way to the weekend. I hope everyone is enjoying their week so far!
