Remember that sour cherry brandy I started way back in the early fall? It all began with a bag of wild cherries my husband’s friend Doug picked off a tree in his backyard.
I mixed the cherries with sugar, a bit of water and a dash of yeast then let them ferment. You can read my earlier post for the full recipe.
After a month or so, when the bubbling stopped, I added a whole bottle of 151 Vodka. Then I tucked it away in the bottom of the pantry to age in an old vinegar bottle.
It was strong but very flavorful. You could feel it warming you all the way down!
I send Doug, the collector of the cherries, the pictures above and a message that said: cherry brandy is a success!
Looks like we’ll have something else to be foraging next fall…
