We came home from the farm with A LOT of cherries, so along with kumquats I’ve been searching for boozy ways to preserve these as well. First up, Brandied Cherries, which my mom used to make and are excellent in cocktails or over ice cream or cheesecake.
This recipe from Saveur seemed to be the easiest and most straightforward.
- 2 cups sugar
- 4 cups brandy
- 2 lb. fresh sweet cherries, stemmed and pitted
- canning jar/s
