I enjoyed your story. People do not can and freeze today because everything is in the grocery store and convenient. I enjoy canning and freezing for my family. It's hard work but well worth the effort to have all your fruits and vegetables whenever you want them on hand, and delicious also.

Wow! 22 quarts! You really had quite an undertaking. I like to make homemade preserves, especially berry. I just buy the berries, though. But, there is just nothing that tastes as good! The only thing is that it is difficult to wait until they have cured!

I remember well canning and freezing goods in the summer time. I was always right under my Mom every step of the way. I still can some things but not as much she did. I have a much smaller family.

What an endeavor!!! I have never canned anything and am impressed with your efforts and I'm sure you and your family will enjoy every recipe where you use the cherries.

I like your memory. It's funny how smells and certain baking/actions in the kitchens can take you right back to your childhood. I have seferal recipes that are from my childhood (although I have "healthified them just a little) that I will cook or bake every so often or for holidays that take me back every time.

In my youth my Mom did alot of canning. Cherries, Peaches, Pears and Tomatoes. They sure came in handy when cooking
