On Father's Day, the Lovey and I went to a fruit tasting at Andy's Orchard, my favorite stone fruit grower (until our trees begin to bear fruit. Then we will be my favorite). Because the trip was mainly for me, I gained the Lovey's favor with a bribe of cherry pie. Yes, I am not beneath a bribe to make my love happy.
Andy had some Black Tartarian cherries, one of the varieties of cherry we planted, flagged for harvest, so I picked about 2 1/2 pounds of these babies for the pie.
|Boy oh boy, do these babies stain the fingers!|
|Seven slits for Seven Cats Farm|
Not bad for my first cherry pie.
