I just picked my cherry tree. I have a bowl full of cherries that are really kinda sour. I would like to make something out of them but I need to cook them and add sugar???

Here, there, and everywhere...
Oooo you could make Cherry Mojitos or Cherry Vodka with them.... Look up the Cherry Mojitos on Marthastewart.com in the recipe section... For the Vodka, you'd cut them in half, pit them and then soak them in large mason jars of vodka for several months....

Mmmmm.

Impossible cobbler

1 cup milk
1 cup self rising flour
1 cup sugar
2 cups halved pitted cherries
1/2 stick butter or margarine

Heat oven to 350. Melt butter in pan in oven. Remove, and place cherries in pan. Whisk milk, four and sugar together, then pour over cherries. Bake about 30 minutes or til crust is nicely browned.

Easy, easy and delish. Works great with blackberries and peaches, too.
