Pickled Cherries by Nutmeg Nanny

Cherries are my true summer love. When I see them for the first time in the store I almost jump for joy. Then I immediately get annoyed because the price will be out of this world expensive and I refuse to let myself buy them. Mostly because I know I will get home, eat the entire bag and then be annoyed at myself for eating an entire 2 pound bag of cherries that cost me $12.

However, when cherries go on sale I’m all over them. I will buy ginormous bags that I will turn into pie, cocktails and frozen yogurt. I love almost anything made with fresh cherries but if you ever try to give me something made with cherry pie filling I will immediately turn my nose up. That is where I draw the line folks. Cherry pie filling is a poor substitution for fresh cherries and soooooooo not the same thing.
