I picked up some sweet cherries for a FANTASTIC price – $1.99/lb.! I haven’t been able to touch cherries for less than $5 a pound until now, and the sales have been around $3 a pound, so my $2 a pound was too good to pass up. I’ve got 4.5 pounds of gorgeous sweet cherries from Sprouts Farmers Market. BTW, if you have a Sprouts in your neck of the woods, GO! They have fabulous prices on produce, really good looking meat, and a wide variety of other natural, organic, and conventional products.
I found this recipe for sweet cherry vanilla jam and thought I’d give it a try.
Tasty stuff! Be sure to check out the recipe and follow either the conventional instructions, or the Jam and Jelly Maker instructions if you have that gadget from Ball.
Cherries came from Sprouts Farmers Market
