The little, highly productive cherry tree.
Children picking ripe cherries.
Here we picked about 4 gallons of cherries. After washing them, I used my Food Saver to package the cherries for freezing. I LOVE my Food Saver! My brother and sister-in-law surprised me with this gift and it has been an invaluable asset to our family. I am using it constantly.
I separated out the cherries into 2-pie serving size bags. 4 cups of cherries will make one pie. I have a wonderful family recipe for pie crust and was told by my great aunt that I could make up the pies ahead of time and freeze the uncooked pies. What a Great idea!
