Orondo Ruby Reef Jam

6 posts in this topic

Orondo Ruby Cherries? - that's a new one to me so I did a little research. 

 

In 2001 a Rainer Cherry farmer from Orondo Washington noticed a strange cherry tree in the middle of his Rainer orchard. He figured it was a natural hybrid cross pollination of Bing and Rainer Cherries. It produced fruit earlier in the year,  was bigger, slightly sweeter, redder, and more firm then his Rainer Cherries. He sent samples off to a fruit tree laboratory and discovered that it was not a hybrid rather a whole new species that mother nature had given him. In 2008 he was awarded a patent for his new cherries and the process of grafting, growing and harvesting  Orondo Cherries began. His patent doesn't expire until 2028 so for now it's a very limited crop with availability only for a couple of weeks at the beginning of July, if your lucky enough to find them. 

 

I managed to get hold of a few boxes so I decided to make a batch of Reef Jam. I almost forgot to heat up my seal lids so I had to scramble in the middle of the cook process. During all that I forgot to take a picture of the jam cooking. Going to make some cherry pork chops for dinner tomorrow night.

Prepping the fruit is a bit of work but when it's winter and you take a bite of that fresh summer taste it's all worth it.
