Sweet organic Bing Cherries were on sale last week at Whole Foods. So, I bought some. A lot. When presented with a lot of fruit, many people turn to jams and jellies, or bake some pies. Not me.
I turn to liqueur. Homemade liqueur that is. I found that I had a hard time using up jars of jellies and jams – I don’t eat much toast or many peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. On the other hand, I found that I had absolutely no difficulty whatsoever using up liqueurs. None. They are gone in a flash.
So, I googled and found: Bourbon-Soaked Cherries at Food Woolf and Dark Cherry Liqueur at Homebrew Underground. They sounded like just what the doctor ordered. My cherries and various and assorted liquors are resting right now. Getting ready to make me very happy in the near future.
