Cool! I harvested over 170 lbs from my one cherry tree this year! They are this tart variety you mentioned. I made some tart jam, as well as dehydrated berries, but my favorite was the Boozy Berries! They are great in cocktails - beyond delicious, and healthier too (DEFINITELY more than a Luxardo or Maraschino cherry) - not sure if it's the cherries or the cocktails that help most with pain management....but seems like a winning combination! Thanks for all the info that I can use to support my habit! XX
Yeah I definitely don't imbibe like I used to, but my partner loves his evening cocktails so I get at least a few sips - enough to enjoy it but not interfere with my health goals. That's a fun way I can continue creative bartending, which I love!
Due to bc I limit alcohol, but other sounds great. T Y.🌷💐🌹
@ Dedeopia I have found they go well in pretty much everything, but I like them best in an old fashioned. :-) Last night I mixed some of the tart cherry jam in a peanut butter scotch - it was delicious too! :-)
