Today I made a batch of cherry jam. It's not often we get good cherries here so I grabbed some while they were sweet and local. Let's face it, making jam is tedious and fiddly. But oh the reward! When I was done we sat on the couch eating bowls of vanilla ice cream and cherry syrup, laughing between mouthfuls because it was so damn good. I have 8 jars of happiness to keep us going until next cherry season, I doubt they'll last a month.
