Place jar in pan as syrup might run over. Store in cool place for six weeks. Strain and add one quart whiskey. Bottle and serve when a real treat is desired.
Layer alternately wild cherries and sugar in a gallon jar. Place plate on top of cherries inside the jar to weight them. Cover and let stand until the next day, when there will be a quantity of syrup present. Add wild cherries and sugar each day until the jar remains filled after standing overnight. Cover, but don't stir.
