  • Summary

    In honor of George (of course), the following recipe uses canned, frozen or bottled sour cherries. Canned cherry pie filling is a bright-red, gelatinous substance that bears only faint resemblance to the fruit from which it supposedly springs. Bakers who've used sour cherries know they're well worth the effort. Hopefully your store carries these cherries; they're a tawny red, rather than neon-colored. Many coops carry individually quick frozen sour cherries, which have a beautiful bright red color and unforgettable flavor.

    Ingredients

    • one prepared double pie crust or your favorite recipe
    • 5 to 6 cups (1125g to 1350g) sour cherries packed in water or individually quick frozen
    • 3/4 cup (149g) sugar
    • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon optional
    • 1/4 cup (43g) quick-cooking tapioca or 1/2 cup (99g) Pie Filling Enhancer
    • 1 teaspoon almond extract
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 2 tablespoons (28g) butter optional
