This weekend, I and my husband went to our granma's house,Japanese cherry orchard.
The cherry season is only 2-3 weeks and it's quite busy season for them to pick them up and place in the box etc, so we went there to help her (she is 82 years old!)but most of the time we just pick up ant ate them
Hope we could help some!
It takes time to place cherry in a box!
Her house is at Yamanashi, next to Tokyo province, and I love country side in Japan very much. Great atmosphere-
Breakfast (I know Japanese people eat a lot!)
Old houses in their town
They usually don't sell bad shape ones, so she gave us a lot of them and I made cherry Jam and some sweets after we came back home.
- Cherry jam recipe
1kg of Cherry ( I removed seeds by hand in advance, and keep the juice also)
400g of sugar
50g of lemon juice (about 1-2 lemons)
1. Place cherry and half sugar in a bowl and leave it for 30 minutes.
2. Place (1) and lemon in a pan and cook it for 1 hour. Remove harshness if there's. Keep Skimming scum until it's gone.
3. Add the lest of the sugar and boil it for 30 minutes.
4. Place the Jam in a jar during it's hot and upside-down until it cools down.
Can't wait to use them to make some sweets..!!
