Cherries Jubilee!

I'm sitting down after many hours of quality time spent with... cherries. There's the picking, hauling, washing, sorting:

Then there's the pitter! This is the most time-consuming part, of course so you NEED a good cherry pitter. This is a Pampered Chef one. I also used, just a cheap plastic one from a grocery store. Either way, you don't want jam with pits!
Speaking of jam.... I made 5 batches of Cherry freezer jam! These containers from Ball work great! Just twist, open and with some fresh bread and peanut butter!

I also made 3 canner-fuls of cherry pie filling! Yum! It even has cinnamon and nutmeg!

Cherries. They are jubilicious!
ps. this is by no means the full process of canning cherries! For that info, look for up -to- date canning recipes and guidelines from Ball!
