We went to pick cherry and picked so much that even after sending it to many of our friends and lot was still remaining. I didn't want to freeze as i have already freezed a lot of strawberry and my freezer will be soon out of capacity:)So i was thinking what to do with it other than making jams , an old memory of eating Ber Ka Achar came to my mind. I sure for all of us who has ever eaten Bengali Kuler Achar will be salivating hearing the name of ber ka achar.
