Sour Cherry Liqueur

Yes, you can make pie, cakes, gelato, sorbet or various other things with sour cherries.  I like to make booze with them.  This incredibly easy recipe makes the most fabulous sipping liqueur.

6 liters of Manitoba sour cherries.  Pits and all

26 oz vodka

7 cups sugar.

Give the cherries a quick rinse if they are dirty.  Put them in a large plastic or glass container (not metal).  Sprinkle the sugar on top, mix it in with a wooden spoon while sprinkling.

Add the vodka, mix it all in.   Stir until the sugar is all dissolved.

Put a lid on, shake it up a bit, and sit it on your countertop or somewhere where you will see it every day.

Every day for 5-6 weeks give the pail a quick shake.  Don't open it and sneak a cherry or two.  Patience is a virtue with this.

After 6 weeks, strain the liquid though cheese cloth.  Let the cherries drain for a few hours, and squeeze out the precious liquid with your hands.

Store in mason jars.  Serve with carbonated water, over ice cream, or sip from a small glass.  Bring as a hostess gift and everyone will love you.

ENJOY!
