Picked Cherries off my tree!!

My Cherry tree is a Montmorency. The cherries are the smaller tart kind perfect for pies. I know its hard to see all the cherries on the tree but the bowl I picked is only about a third of them. The bowl is a cake topper.

Now I have to pit and wash them. I want to make a jam with some. I haven't made jam before. Depending on the total amount I get this year I may freeze some.

How wonderful! do you have a food mill so you won't have to pit them by hand? I do see the cherries on the tree and I bet they're beautiful in person!

Wow! How nice to have your own cherries! They are beautiful and will be yummy. I guess I'd want to make a cherry pie! Hugs!
