Pickled Cherries
Method

This recipe calls for a jar with the capacity to hold 1 ½ liters!

  • Wash the cherries by submerging them into water and letting them soak without stirring them too much. Drain and let them strain on a towel without moving them around. We want them to remain as firm as possible.
  • In a medium pot, add all of the ingredients, apart from the cherries. Heat the mixture over low heat until the sugar dissolves.
  • Pierce each cherry once, with a packing needle. Leave the stems and pits intact.
  • When all of the cherries are ready, add them to the hot mixture. Simmer for ONLY 3-4 minutes.
  • The liquid should be barely simmering. DO NOT cook any longer or else the cherries will burst open or the skin will crack and they will not look presentable.
  • Remove the cherries from the pot with a slotted spoon and transfer to jar.
  • Boil the liquid in the pot over higher heat, until it becomes thickens to a syrupy consistency.
  • Remove the spices and discard. Allow the syrup to cool.
  • When it has cooled, pour over cherries in jar.
  • Seal and refrigerate. It can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 1 year.
  • Serve with a variety of cheeses, cold cuts or your choice of meat!
