Preserving Cherries & Plums

Cherry season is here! Cherries are just coming in from Eastern, Wa and it's a great time to stock up for winter months when you're craving fruits of summer. Buying cherries in bulk and putting them up is the smartest way to save money & eat like a king all winter long by using the skills learned in this  informative class where we will preserve stone fruit.
