i was unable to find any pictures in my files of the cherries on the trees, and there are few if any this year.  Here is a picture of the blossoms in mid-late Spring

And here is a small bowl full I harvested

*AHEM*   This is how I process, not necessarily a "safe" or "approved" method, so I'm not saying YOU should do it the same way. 

I rinse and cook them in water, mash them up, and squeeze through fine cloth.  I then add the juice to simple syrup (water and as much sugar as you want). bring to a boil, and simmer until it is the consistency I want for syrup.  Then I pour into sterilized mason jars and secure the lids tightly.
