    Recipe ingredients and directions:

    Yield: about 1 quart

    1 1/2 pounds red cherries, with pits, no stems

    1 1/2 cups sugar, (up to 2 cups), sweeten to taste

    2 1/2 cups vodka

    1 cup brandy

    Mix vodka, brandy and sugar in a large glass measure or medium

    mixing bowl; stir well to dissolve. Cut each washed cherry slightly

    to open, leave in pits. Place cherries in two sterile, quart wide

    mouth jars or one larger aging container. Pour liquid mixture over

    cherries; stir and cap with tight lids. For the first two weeks,

    shake jars several times. Let age in a cool, dark place for at

    least 3 months for best flavor. Strain off liqueur through a wire

    mesh strainer and discard cherries. Rebottle as desired. Liqueur

    is ready in 3 months.

    VARIATIONS:

    Almond-Cherry Liqueur: For a more prominent "almond" flavor, pit

    all or part of the cherries. Place cherry pits in a clean cloth

    and hit with a hammer to break them up slightly. Put broken pits

    and pitted cherries in jars or large container and continue as

    directed.

    Sugarless Cherry Liqueur: Substitute 1 cup apple juice concentrate,

    undiluted, for the sugar in the Cherry Liqueur recipe. Proceed as

    directed. The "sugars" present will be natural fruit sugars rather

    than the granulated processed sugars. Taste is excellent; aging is

    the same.
