Cherry Pie Filling For Canning

I kicked off my canning season this year with cherry pie filling. You can use cherry pie filling not only for pies but for cobbler, crisps, topping for a cheesecake…you get the idea. I buy tart cherries from a local orchard. Cherries aren’t exactly cheap…I paid $34 for 8 quarts, but its well worth it. I have used sweet cherries before in this recipe but I feel that the pie filling was way to sweet for my taste, so I will just stick with the tart cherries.

A peak inside Grandma’s recipe book

This is my Grandma’s notebook. The pages are worn and stained. She passed away almost a year ago. My favorite memories of her usually involve food…her food. She made the best meals…in the old fashion cooking kind of way.

I love a cooked dressing for potato salad. Its flavorful and super creamy. It’s a perfect side for a cookout! I always loved grilled chicken with a side of potato salad. I like to include lots of pics, but this dreary weather makes for some bad lighting. I’ll do my best with the pics!
