Magnolia Holler, part 3 - Cherries Galore

Our first Spring at Magnolia Holler we found a wild sour cherry tree. Now, I didn't think much of it, except for its beautiful blossoms.
I was so wrong! Our neighbor has a sour cherry tree and she had me on a ladder up in the tree picking cherries. Not knowing exactly what to do with sour cherries, I Googled it. I found a recipe for 'Sour Cherry Cake'.

Ok, if you're a rhubarb custard fan (as my husband is), then you'll enjoy the sweet and tartness of the sour cherry cake. I found it delicious and thought my husband would too, however while the taste was to his liking, the texture was not - it was a cake after all, not a custard pie.

I can't wait to harvest our cherries this year and make the cake again. Maybe I'll also try making it into a custard pie too!

What do y'all do with sour cherries?
This was shared at the Old Time Party!
