Q and A: canning beans, meat and soup, planting sprouted potatoes, and Nanking cherries — 2 Comments

  1. I love our bush cherries and juice them by the tons every year. We started with one bush, and the birds have planted them all over the place! They make extraordinary jelly, juice and wine. I can only dream of the flavor they would give to a pie.

    What I would love to know is what kind of sieve you use. I’m pretty sure than the ones we have are (1) too big holes, or (2) too small holes. We do have a Victorio, but have not been successful with any of the different-sized cones.

  2. Cindy, you will love your Nanking cherries. I have used a juicer as well as a sieve. My best output & easiest was the Mehu-Liisa that Jackie likes. I got a out a gallon of juice from 2 gallon bags of cherries. Makes great jelly/jam.
