Get to the store and buy those cherries while you still can!
I love when cherries are in season, but they just aren’t around for too long which makes me sad.
I remember when I was little my friends and I used to have pit spitting contests to see who could spit their’s the farthest. I never won, but I did learn to tie a knot in the stems with my tongue!
My one claim to fame.
I know I’m not the only one in the world who can do it and at this age, it takes me quite a bit more time. Guess the old tongue just ain’t what she used to be.
I used the pound cake recipe from my The Fannie Farmer Cookbook Thirteenth Edition, p. 571; author, Marion Cunningham; publisher, Alfred A. Knopf, division of Random House; ISBN 0-394-56788-9.
I rate everything I make on a scale of 1 -4 and this Cherry Pound Cake earned 3 rolling pins.
It was good with the cherries in it, but all I could think about while eating it was enjoying plain pound cake with some strawberries and whipped cream.
It was a nice change from a plain pound cake though and was a great way to use those delicious fresh cherries.
