My parents have a sour cherry tree in their backyard so last timed it produced I went out and picked as much as I could. My Mom's recipe was good but when I made this and brought it to her she dropped her jaw and wanted the recipe. This one is going in the family cookbook for many years SO GOOD. Thanks!
I made this pie filling last year and canned it in quart jars. I just made a deep dish with 1 1/2 jars, and my mom's homemade vinegar crust recipe, and I have to tell you this is one of the best cherry pies that I have ever tasted, my mother in law took it to work with her and one of her coworkers just offered to buy a quart from me. I am entering it at the fair this year for the cherry contest. It is perfect it is not to sweet, not to tart and you can actually taste the cherries.
