Cherries = Summer

Fresh Tart Cherries

And, cherries (the tart, Minnesota variety) = jam!

Tart Cherry Jam

I added a few cranberries (for pectin), and the jam is just on this side of tart. Tasty.

It’s nice to see the freezer and the pantry beginning to fill up with the bounty of the season. Winter may be cold here, but it’s much easier to go through it with little jars full of Summer.
