Cherry Jammin'

Cherries are gorgeous, even at night.

They do, however, take forever to process into jam. First we have to wait until the kid is in bed.  Then we have to pit every. single. cherry. We could use a cherry pitter, but we find it's faster to just do it by hand.  And by "faster", I don't exactly mean "fast." By the time we put the cherries in the pot, the clock looked like this:

Yep, that's 10:43 pm. 

By the time the jars were out of the water bath, we were here:

That's when I went to bed and the lovely Sarah stayed up to finish processing the remaining jars and clean the kitchen. Yeah, I'm keeping her.

Things looked brighter in the morning.

I'm looking forward to blueberries.
