The cherries are gone for another year. During all the rush and business of ball games, graduations, milkings and garden weedings, I managed to put up 9 pints of cherry jam and freeze several bags for later making pies, jams, homemade ice cream, etc. It's always sort of sad when the cherries are gone each year but that means the blackberries will be ripe soon!

Our cherries are just getting ready. I've just started the strawberry jams, and now I need to do cherries. Such is the way of life, it keeps moving.

I myself love canning too.It's rewarding when you open a jar of preserves or jam and put a spoon full inside a warm buttermilk biscuit.
