Cherry pie

Post by Bavis54 » Sat Apr 14, 2018 7:50 pm

This recipe isn’t wholly mine- I tweaked recipe from internet- made it 3 times now n it’s great stuff
-2 32 oz bottles of tart cherry juice
-3 cinnamon sticks
-3 allspice berries
-1 jar of maraschino cherries
1 and 1/2 pint to 1 qt neutral- adjust to ur liking

Combine juice , cinnamon sticks, and allspice berries in pot and simmer. 3 allspice berries sounds like minimal amount but beware- it’s strong. Only 3 berries!
Once at simmer let cool, add neutral spirit- or fruit brandy watever u like, I’ve used both. Divide cherries amongst 3 qt jars- this recipe makes 3 qts and 1 pint. Pick out cinnamon sticks n add 1 to each qt jar, then pour liquid in each jar- depending on how much alcohol u used u will have3 and 1/2 qts to 4 qts. It really is smooth stuff, the longer sits the better- beware!!
