sour cherries

It's a Saturday in May, which means...farmer's market. It's one of my favorite places to go! It's a little early in the summer, so not too many things ready yet. Lots of lettuces, onions, spinach, radishes. Also, two of my favorite are in season...strawberries and cherries. Well, I bought strawberries a few days ago and made jam. I bought cherries today. Needless to say, my next adventure.....cherry freezer jam!

This will be my first time ever making cherry freezer jam. The recipe inside the SURE JELL box calls for sour cherries, and that's exactly what I bought. If time allows, I am hoping to make the jam tomorrow. I think I can fit it in!! I'll let ya know how it goes.
