Wild cherries are amazing this year. We have never had any worth picking before, but they are nice now. We can only reach one tree that hangs over our driveway and it took a ladder and some rope for pulling down branches. We ended up with about a half gallon.
So, the cherries were in the fridge almost a week. A few worms showed up, but not a concern. They should dissolve into the 100 proof vodka I am using to make cherry liqueur. I also added two cups of sugar.
