This afternoon Tony, Alexander and I picked 2kg of cherries off a neighbourhood tree. I have stoned them and put them to soak in brandy for Christmas. I could have got tons more but don't need them as I still have loads of jam from last year. Aldi's currently have 200g punnets of cherries for £1.09. That means I have in excess of £10 woth of cherries for free. Next month it will be plum season so I plan to collect a load and make plum brandy too. I am seriously thinking about starting a rumtopf for Christmas as it is such a waste to let good fruit just rot on the trees.
