Cherries, Cherries & more Cherries

Just been and picked some cherries from our tree, and have decided to make some Cherry Jam, Cherry Compote, Cherry Pie Filling and Cherry Brandy, and when the Cherries are finished with in the Cherry Brandy I will dip them in chocolate mmmmmmmmm

I have already made 12 jars of Marmalade, 3 Jars of Blackcurrant Jam, 8 pots of Cherry & Redcurrant Jam and 4 pots of Redcurrant Jelly
and will be making Lemon Curd, Orange Curd, Lemon Marmalade and Lime Marmalade.


I found a site that lets you make and print out your own labels click here to go to the site
I have decided to make up a few mini hampers with all my goodies this Christmas.
I have to say I am enjoying this new hobby

Wow Wendi, what some great ideas here! We have a cherry tree in our garden as well, along with an apple tree and this year we planted rhubarb, blueberries & blackberries. Looking forward to eating all those babies in any shape or form :)

Hi Wendi, thank you for your lovely welcome. I have been looking at your blog and I just love how you painted your table and chairs and other furniture. I do this type of thing as well and chalk paint is amazing! You have certainly made lots of wonderful things with your fruit, I always intend to but just seem to put them in bags and fill the deepfreeze! Michelle x
