Twenty-five pounds a whole lot of cherries. Especially if you picked them yourself (which I did, once again at Hurd Orchards ).

All twenty-five pounds came from this tree. That took about two hours.

Then of course, there's the pitting of the cherries. Fortunately I have a double action pitter which I got from Lehman's . So that took about four hours.

Finally, there's the freezing of most of them and the making of cherry topping. That's probably another two hours. I would show you a picture but frankly it would look just like the strawberry rhubarb jam pictures.

Instead you can just lose yourself in the cherries.

The eight or so hours were totally worth it.
