  • 1/2 lb Bing Cherries
  • 1/2 lb Granulated sugar

Pick plump, shiny, well-coloured fruit with green stems, avoiding dark

cherries as soon as ripe. Wash, stem, and towel dry cherries and place in a

Cover with lid and store on a shelf for 3 months without disturbing, then
strain. Liqueur is ready to serve. Recipe can be varied with extracts
(chocolate, mint, orange, etc). Add approximately 1 teaspoon of extract to
finished liqueur and let sit for another few weeks. Experiment with small
portions of flavorings to find your desired taste. Container: Wide mouth
