Raspberries and Cherries!

Nothing says summer like fresh fruit!

Today I stopped by one of the local fruit stands and picked up some sweet treats for the family.

We got 3 flats of Raspberries, with a few extra little baskets thrown in free because that was all the guy had left and he was EAGER to go home! And I also got 1 quart of Black Cherries, because they are one of my favorites, just for eating.

My husband and the kids immediately had a bowl of raspberries and cream when we stepped in the door. Then after discussing it, I cleaned the rest and put them in 2 cup portions in the freezer. I can make jam, pies, smoothies, ice cream or just raspberries in cream with them later as I choose. Last year I did this with only 1/2 flat of raspberries. With our bounty of fruit I didn't use those frozen raspberries until well into March and April. :)

It makes me happy to know we will have wonderful fruit for months and months to come.
