As I mentioned earlier, we’ve been having some fun with blueberries and cherries in the Flynn family.
About 45 lbs worth of fun.
Lizzy and I went to the Naches Blueberry Farm and each picked 10.25 lbs of blueberries. I wish I had remembered to take some pictures.
Then I started thinking it was time for cherries, so Steve and I went and u-picked some pie cherries. 7 lbs.
I made pie filling (tutorial coming up soon!) with those, and ended up with 2 pies and 3 jars of pie filling.
Wanna see my pie?
They were magnificent! I took the idea from Mrs. Mama at All Astonishment. Thanks for sharing!!
We enjoyed the pies so much, we decided we needed more cherries. I called around and got prices, and then Steve called around and did some haggling, and we ended up with about 28 lbs of cherries, picked for us, at less than we paid for the U-pick cherries!
28 lbs is a lot of cherries. We were able to get 21 jars of lovely pie filling and we are really excited.
I’m also excited to have about 9 lbs of blueberries left in my freezer!!
How are you preserving your summer fruits?
