it’s my last week of fruit preserving for the season.
we took another trip up to Cane orchards in Franklin, thanks to a longer fruit season this year, plus back in Cygnet I grabbed one last bucket of $10 cherries before they finish up. On the agenda this week is preserved peach/nectarine 1/4’s and a rich bottled cherry sauce for desserts over Winter- Lucky I’m a speedy cherry pitter, makes a juicy staining mess thou!
i was so super happy with my cherry, vanilla bean & rosewater jam. This year I perfected it by adding a lil bag of my frozen gooseberries, to boost the pectin content-gel factor, which is always an issue with cherries.
