I got a box of Rainier cherries from Bountiful Baskets last week and spent some of yesterday canning them up. I had a lot of bruised cherries so I was a little disappointed by that especially since my sister said hers were awesome. I still got about 10 pints canned and a lot of them went into my belly.
Canning cherries was super easy. I did cut all of these in half and pit them, although I remember my mom never did and we loved eating canned cherries when I was growing up, so I am thinking I will can the rest of them with the pits in and be lazy about it.
I have been eating a lot of cherries lately, but they aren't in season very long and I LOVE cherries. That said eating a lot of cherries is not always compatible with early morning runs. You would think I would learn.
My Aunt gave the kids both a beta fish recently and this morning much to my dismay I discovered one of the fish bowls had cracked some time ago and leaked all over the antique dresser they were sitting on. It ruined the top of it.
I didn't notice right away because they were sitting on a dark colored placemat. UGH. So now I will have to figure out what I need to do to restore it. and find another bowl for the fish.
