Cherry pie filling

We have only one poor disabled cherry tree (due to ice storm 3 yrs ago).   Jim lifts me up into the tree via his tractor bucket and I pick.  We did this 3 times this season and harvested 3 gallons which then have to be pitted.   I canned 9 quarts and 1 pint of pie filling. 4 jars of cherry jam, and made a cherry cheesecake.  Delicious!  I use Clear Jel from the Amish market for my filling;  it turns out thick and clear, like the commercial product.
