Makes 8 servings.

2 1/2 cups fresh, sweet Northwest cherries (about 1 pound), pitted
2 1/2 cups fresh or frozen tart cherries (about 1 pound), pitted
1/2 cup dried tart cherries
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons quick-cooking tapioca
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Pastry for 2-crust, 9-inch pie
1 tablespoon butter, chopped

1) Combine tart cherries, sweet cherries, dried cherries, sugar, tapioca, almond extract and nutmeg in a large bowl; mix well. Let stand 15 minutes. (It is not necessary to thaw frozen tart cherries before using.)

2) Line a 9-inch pie plate with half the pastry. Fill with cherry mixture; dot with butter. Roll out remaining pastry and cut into six strips about 1-inch wide and 10-inches long. Weave into a lattice pattern over cherries. Trim edges, pinching top and bottom crusts together.

3) Bake in a preheated 375°F oven 50 to 60 minutes, or until crust is golden and filling is bubbly. If necessary, cover edge of crust with aluminum foil to prevent overbrowning. Let cool before serving.
