Cherry Obsession

I have always wanted a cherry tree.

I was obsessing over these beautiful Bing cherries I bought at a steal of a sale.

Aren’t they beautiful?

I didn’t know what I wanted to do with them but decided on a Fruit Crisp idea I got from our local paper. The paper recipe used a mixture of berries, white flour and sugar… but I used only the cherries, wheat flour, and brown sugar.

I also added a bit of lemon juice.

I then planted the cherry pits in a tub outdoors. If they grow I will keep this blog dated, if not forget it.

Gently combine the filling and place in a 9 inch pie plate.
Combine the topping and sprinkle all over the filling.
Bake about 40 minutes or until top is browned and filling bubbles.

    Don’t know if this will make you feel better, but we have 3 cherry trees, 2 sweet and one sour. I haven’t a clue what to do with the sour cherries but there the only ones we ever get to see. The birds eat the rest so fast we haven’t a chance. We were really careful this year, checking twice a day. There was a hint… and they were gone…
    Maybe I should think about feeding the birds… to the hawk!

    I just love sweet cherry season. This year they have been especially delicious and I don’t even hesitate in the store to check the price. I just grab a bag and go. I could eat them until I keel over with delight.
