A few days ago my family headed to the orchard to pick Cherries. We climbed rustic wooden ladders, straining for the best cherries & were delighted with the ripe red sours.
There is something perfect about harvesting your own ingredients before making pie, jam, or crisp.
24 pints of jam later I can tell you that I think we succeeded & as I type this my hubby is driving me back to the orchard for more cherries. This morning Jay headed to the river to fish an early hatch – Trico’s – while I slept. We decided we’d have a late breakfast: Oatmeal Waffles & Sour Cherries with a strong dark mug of French Roast.
Part of the beauty of living here is enjoying fresh produce offerings & daily hatches. Good Fishing & Food are the perfect pair at the Muskegon River Lodge.
Oatmeal Waffles are on the breakfast menu & come paired with local, seasonal produce.
