Last week we took a mini road trip to Leona Valley to go cherry picking at the 5 Star Ranch. The car ride was worth it though; the ranch had Bing and Rainier cherries, and both were delicious! We left with around 12 lbs. of cherries and probably ate at least another pound our two while we picked.
At home we made cherry pie and chocolate chip cherry ice cream. Yum!!
We had a ball making the ice cream. We used this basic vanilla recipe and added chocolate chips and cherries.
(If you are interested in cherry picking, plan a date soon; the season won't last much longer).
