Behold the makings of the newest batch of Sour Cherry Melomel. in the foreground is the last attempt from two years back. This year, I am looking for some serious cherry punch. I am still formulating the specifics but have procured some tart cherries from the local farm market, 8 pounds in fact. Well, 2 pounds were sacrificed in another culinary exercise, the perverbial cherry pie. In addition to the 7# of tart, 3 pounds of Bing cherries were also purchased to round out the flavor a bit.
