This summer I had a little obsession with Bing Cherries. I bought a huge package at Costco, bought a cherry pitter and froze about 10 cups of cherries. My intention was to ask friends Mary to teach me to make preserves with the cherries.
She brought over her canning supplies and we cooked up two batches. I chose two different recipes. That turned out to be a huge mistake. The first batch set up perfectly. The second batch…not so much.
After letting the second batch sit for a week, it still hadn’t set up correctly. So, I remade it. Still, it would not set up. I ended up with 12 good jars of preserves, the rest were thrown out.
Thus, ending my days canning preserves.
