Cherry Brandy

We gave Angel some cherries and she made it. Couldn't find her 8 inch tin and so she used.... a 12 inch (30 cm)!! But I had some at the weekend and it was still very nice. So the size of tin isn't that important it seems!

Sorry about the Imperial measurements Sonya, I will try and remember for next time. It's because I've adapted my mother's old recipe and she is waaaaayyyy before metrication.

Cherries

I have just caught up with this thread - I make cherries in Kirsch -same as with brandy - I steep the cherries in eau de vie ( or alcohol sold here in France as "Alcohol for Fruits)) for three weeks, turning them now and then. Then make a syrup with water and sugar, add to the cherries along with the Kirsch. Leave for six weeks - and enjoy! Cherries can be eaten with ice cream or whatever, and the juice served as an aperitif, well chilled.

(500g black cherries (Girottes) -
stoned
400ml eau de vie
100g sugar with a little boiling
water for the syrup
Kirsch)

Cherry Brandy

Thanks very much TCM, I like Kirsch... I have a recipe that uses cherries in Kirsch. There's certainly still a pound of cherries on the trees and so I may give that a go. I've save the recipe.
