Sour cherries

Sour cherries are tart and delightful. The season is only 10 days to 2 weeks long, so picking and preserving is a mad dash. If you like or love these, you must get to The Ithaca Farmers Market this weekend. Only a few farmers grow them and they disappear into peoples shopping bags quickly.

You can substitute sour cherries for blueberries in the Blueberry Custard Pie recipe, minus the apple toping, or make a traditional 2 crust pie.

My favorite way is to top plain vanilla ice cream with fresh cherries. This was always my Saturday night dessert at The Finger Lakes GrassRoots Festival, in the hospitality barn.

Diamonds are forever

Herkimer diamonds are an amazingly clear diamond like quartz crystal that you can mine in Middleville, NY. It's a fun way to get some great exercise with shiny prizes.

The Ace of Diamonds Mine and Campground is open for the season and a great place. I have mined for diamonds and have a few set in a necklace and earrings.

They have a store with Herkimer diamond jewels and Ithaca Soap Instant Liquid Soap.

Do something different while you're out on this holiday weekend

The Instant Liquid Soap makes an excellent camping soap.

Small business rocks!

Are you staying in Ithaca? You have to check out Stonebend farm. It's right up the road Upper Treman Park.

There's local beer and some very delicious wood fired pizza all made fresh with local everything. Farmer Ground Flour Local Cheese, sausage, and tomato sauce grown right there

Plus the view is spectacular. The tavern is in a greenhouse, that is wide open for summer, cool and comfortable. And there's live music. It's child friendly and a super place to go. Check it out on Porter Hill Rd. in Newfield, NY

Wash your hands with Ithaca Soap and get some LiXTiK at the pizza counter.
