I was about to make my cherry blueberry pie for tomorrow, I knew I had 1 can of sour cherries, before I went to the store today I had seen a second large glass jar of organic cherries, that I didn't remember buying, but which looked good - then I got them out and saw the jar actually read "organic cherry tomatoes", so no pie making tonight - thankfully the store nearby is open tomorrow morning, and our gathering isn't until the evening, so all is well. Also, when making the pie crust (which is already made and in a ball in the fridge, awaiting being rolled out), I had my regular double check with my three clear plastic spice jars of bulk ingredients - xanthan gum, cream of tartar, and onion powder are all fine white powders, but are not remotely interchangeable when cooking. I have never mixed them up, but I always double check before using one.
