It’s Cherry Pie Time
It’s cherry pie time…almost and when I received an invitation yesterday to pick the sour cherries on a tree not too far from me, I knew I needed to jump on it before someone else claimed them. I was on the ferry heading to Seattle for a book event when I received a text with this generous offer. I was not going to let an opportunity like this pass me by, so I immediately made arrangements to go visit that tree as soon as I could today. The tree is laden with a beautiful crop and I think they will be ready to pick later next week. I already have some special plans for them. When I saw them it reminded me of another day I wrote about a tree I was invited to pick. I’ll be planting my own Montmorency cherry tree this fall and about three years from now hopefully I’ll be walking right out into my orchard to pick a sour cherry pie. I’ll probably write about that, too! I’m nothing but consistent. Right? Anyway, I hope you enjoy the story below and the recipe that you’ll find there, too. It’s one of my absolute favorites.
