This is an easy way to preserve those gorgeous summer cherries.



This recipe lends itself to exploration. Try Black Onyx Chocolate Sugar in place of Vanilla Bean Sugar or Chai Spices in place of Mulling Spices.


In a small saucepan, bring water and sugar to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar. Place Mulling Spices in a muslin bag and add bag to sugar water. Stir in brandy and cherries. Return mixture to a boil then lower heat and simmer for 5 min. Remove from heat and stir in lemon or lime juice. Transfer cherries, liquid and muslin bag with spices to a Mason jar. Let cool uncovered. Seal jar and refrigerate for 48 hours. After 48 hours, remove and discard muslin bag with spices.
