Every year my mother in law gets sour cherries from Payson. This year I placed my order and she brought me back a 5 gallon bucket full of cherries with the sugar. My mom came over to help me bottle them. She stirred the cherries and then we put them in the bottles and then you just cold pack them. I was amazed at how easy it was. Next year I think I will do 10 gallons. Jon decided he wanted to help too! So here are some pictures of the process and the result!

The deal Jon and I made was that I had to learn how to make his mom's cherry pie if I was going to bottle cherries. I agreed and one day after work we went to his mom's and she taught us how to make her cherry pie! This pie is Jon's. Notice the little hole at the bottom from his finger!

This is my master piece!

The pies were delicious. Now hopefully I can make them right! I am excited to try on my own!
Thanks for stopping by!
