    With three of us picking, it took under 2 hours to fill our three LARGE buckets. The sweet cherries went faster, because they are larger and firmer. The sour cherries were smaller, softer, and juicier so at one point DD and I looked at our bucket and wondered if the quantity in there was somehow shrinking!

    Yes you do have to pit them before freezing. The sweet cherries have flesh that adheres to the pits so they are much harder to pit. This is the first year that our timing was right to pick sour cherries too, and those are surprisingly MUCH easier to pit. I poked 'em with the blunt handle of a seafood fork and the pits pop right out. Very easy indeed!

    fill a few quart jars with nice red ripe cherries (without seeds); put a bunch of sugar over them and fill the jars with brandy.

    Let sit for 6 months at earliest; leave it for 18 months (the next holiday season) and you're beginning to talk smooth and velvety... :twisted:

    Does it have to be any particular kind of brandy?
