How to make it

  • Wash cherries and remove stems. Put cherries in a wide mouth 2-quart jar in layers with sugar and spices. Pour the whiskey over all. Let stand at
  • room temperature, covered, for at least 2 months. The longer it stands,
  • the better it tastes. Makes 2 quarts.
  • Recipe provided by Mrs. Harvard Cox
  • from Cherries Galore
  • published by Macon Telegraph and News - 1984
  • Mel's notes: wear an apron. The cherry juice does NOT come out of clothes.
  • Made my first batch in August 2006. I let it stand for about 4 months before bottling. Needs some time in the bottle to "smooth" out. It will be delicious for Christmas 2007
