I baked a fresh cherry pie. I LOVE fresh cherries and have been on a pie baking kick recently. So I found a cherry pie recipe on AllRecipes.com that seemed good, and gave it a try.
Initially, the pitted cherries were dry in the pot. I thought there must be a mistake in the recipe, as a try pan will not boil. However, the magic of science prevailed and eventually the pan was soupy, to my great relief. I didn’t have a cherry pitter, so sliced each in half with the very sharp knife Kirsten had given to me, and removed each pit by hand.
The pie was very good.
