This past Friday, Whole Foods had their sweet cherries on sale for 1.99/lb!! I don't usually shop at Whole Foods because the prices are insanely high but I couldn't pass up this sale. I bought 12 pounds of cherries.

These will be pitted (thankfully I just bought a cherry pitter) and made into jam, frozen whole, and pureed and frozen to use to make cherry applesauce this fall.

I had almost given up on getting cherries this year since the you-pick orchard that I was planning to visit, is an hour away and between the heat and our busy schedule, I hadn't found time to go pick.

I thought I loved cherries.... Evan was eating them as fast as I could pit them yesterday. He has yet to meet a fruit that he doesn't adore.
