Chuckleberry Jam

oil on canvas panel 6x6 inches
On our trip we learned that the northwest is huckleberry territory. Near Flathead Lake, Montana cherry orchards are everywhere. We stopped at a one-person roadside stand where a friendly lady was selling fresh cherries and her own chuckleberry jam (cherry+huckleberry). "A chuckle a day keeps the blues away" the tag reads. She had lots of customers. We ate rainiers as we drove, throwing the pits and stems out the windows. Wish we'd bought more jam!
