Cherry Pie Filling

pot filled with cherries being cooked with spoon on top

Once again I have too many cherries.  I think it’s because the season is so short and I love them so much that I buy buy buy.  Anyway this year I’m not only making my Cherry Jam, but I’m making a cherry pie filling as well.  I make the filling in advance so it can cool before adding to the pie.
