To stem the cherry flood by Gold-Seven To stem the cherry flood by Gold-Seven
Aaaah the small German villages, where the world's still a nice place and where mothers cook jam.


It's not as if I had a choice though. 2013 will be known as the Year of the Cherry. Alternatively, the Year of the Fruit Plague. Making jam is the only option to keep the flood of fruit in check (plus giving buckets of cherries away to friends and neighbours!). This is just the last two days' harvest, and our cherry tree is still so full of the stuff that it's almost cracking under the weight O_o

And being the creative person that I am, I don't do it under "Redcurrant-Cinnamon", "Cherry-Marzipan", "Cherry-Coconut", "Schwarzwälder Kirsch" or "Gooseberry-Vanilla".

Thank you! Funny thing is, I'm not really into canning. Last year's cherry crop just forced me.

Well in that case, Jen...I hope you're bursting at the seams with cherries again this year!! *smile* My tendency is towards creating my own sauces and "can" them as gifts. So I really don't have to worry about any bumper-crops of Tangy-Habanero-Barbeque Wing Sauce!

Sounds terrific. No idea what the cherry tree will do this year - if it was me, after last year's exertion, I'd put up a sign saying "You've got to be kidding me - come back in 2015!"

Well how 'bout this then?: Just enough cherries to make you happy. *smile* It's nice when Life works out like that.  It rarely does, that's true. But that's what makes it so special. Here's to your Special cherry crop! *clink*

That would be great. Last year, we made ourselves, all our neighbours, and my sixty-five fellow teachers happy... O_o
