Ingredients

3/4
cup sugar
3/4
cup water
1
tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1
cup brandy
1
lb fresh dark sweet cherries, pitted
1
(1-quart) heatproof jar with tight-fitting lid

Directions

  • 1 In 2-quart saucepan, mix sugar, water and lemon juice. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to low; simmer 8 to 10 minutes or until mixture slightly reduces and thickens. Remove from heat. Stir in brandy and pitted cherries.
  • 2 Transfer cherries and liquid to jar (liquid should cover cherries completely). Cover with lid; seal tightly. Cool completely, about 3 hours.
  • 3 Store in refrigerator 4 to 6 weeks before serving.

Expert Tips

If you cannot find fresh cherries, you can substitute frozen. Be sure they are thawed completely and drained of excess liquid before using.

Cognac can be substituted for the brandy.

When the cherries have been eaten, use the remaining brandy-flavored liquid in cocktails.
