yesterday i stopped by the farmers market for my weekly produce. i couldn't pass up the ripe cherries that were a steal of a deal. i walked out with 7 lbs for $3.00. i had an idea to dehydrate them, what a yummy,healthy snack for my kids. the ones you by in the store are outrageous but o so good. so i sat down at my table with my almost 4 year old. she de stemmed. i pitted, by hand. it was messy. there was juice on the floor, wall, blinds, clothes, bodies covered in juice. but i love being with my children in the kitchen. so hectic at times, but so fun and worth it. we giggled and talked to pass the time.
the fruits of my labor, not so worth it. thinking back i should have made tart cherry jam, or a cherry pie. maybe i will have to go back and get more. :)
