Sweet cherries.

Morelltreet vårt har bugnet av moreller i år, mer enn tidligere og morellene har vært kjempefine. I tillegg har de holdt seg fine over lang tid.
Vi har spist masse moreller rett fra treet, og de er gode :)
Alle disse plukket eldstedatteren i formiddag, og her har vi allerede spist toppen av bollene.


Our sweet cherry tree has been laden with cherries this year, more than previous years, and the cherries have been very nice. They have also lasted for a long time.
We have eaten lots of cherries straight from the tree, and they are sweet and delicious :)
All these were picked by my oldest daughter this morning, and by the time the photo was taken we had already eaten the tops off the bowls.



Vi har aldri brukt å preservere moreller, men i dag har jeg laget noen glass med hermetiserte moreller.
(Steinene ble ikke fjernet, for det orket jeg ganske enkelt ikke). 


We have never used to preserve sweet cherries, but today I canned some.
(The seeds were not removed, as I did not feel like starting on that).



Jeg kokte en enkel sukkerlake av 1,5 liter vann og 6 dl sukker, lot morellene trekke noen minutter i sukkerlaken, før bærene ble fisket opp og lagt på varme, sterile glass.
Så kokte jeg opp sukkerlaken på nytt, fylte opp hvert glass nesten til toppen og satte på lokkene.


I made a simple syrup from 1,5 litres of water and 6 dl sugar, let the sweet cherries simmer in the syrup for a few minutes, before picking out the cherries and adding them to hot, sterile jars.
Then the syrup was brought to a boil, poured over the berries, and the lids closed tightly.



Tre glass a 7,5 dl og to a 5 dl.
Disse skal bli desserter utover høsten. Håper det blir godt sammen med is eller krem.
Jeg har hverken laget eller smakt hermetiserte moreller før, så jeg er spent på resultatet.


Three jars of 7,5 dl and two of 5 dl.
These will be desserts later in autumn. Hopefully they will be good served with ice cream or whipped cream.
I have neither made nor tasted canned sweet cherries before, so I am curious about the result.



Resten av morellene ble fryst, og jeg håper vi får plukket og fryst ned enda noen liter med moreller før de er over for i år.


The rest of the cherries were put in the freezer, and I hope we'll get around to pick and freeze down a few more litres before the cherries finishes.

Wow...lot's of cherries!! Hilde, it is true that I have not eaten such many cherries at a time. Cherry is grown in northern part of Japan and sold across Japan...expensive!
Have a good weekend

Thanks, Sallie :) I guess your canned cherries were delicious!

Oh, I would have sent you a few kilos of cherries if I could, Yael :)

Thank you, Samantha :)

Takk, Jorunn, moreller er så godt, og jeg gleder meg til å åpne glassene etterhvert :) Klem.
