I have about 2 gallons of fresh sour cherries that I picked Wednesday morning. If any one wants some let me know early in the morning. First come first serve, limited availability…. I ‘m taking some to the family tomorrow to make fresh pies and some cherry jam, but have plenty to share. $6 quart or $20 gallon. Below is my easy cherry pie recipe. Enjoy!
FRESH CHERRY PIE
1 1/4 c. sugar
2 1/2 tbsp. flour
1 recipe plain pastry (I use Pillsbury’s rolled pie crust)
1 qt. tart red cherries
1/4 tsp. salt
Wash and pit cherries. Mix sugar, salt and cherries together. Line pan with pastry, add cherry mix and cover with top crust (I like to cut strips and make lattice look). Bake in a 450 degree oven for 10 minutes. Reduce temperature to 350 degrees, bake for 25 minutes longer.
