Royal Anne cherries with no pits
Yield: makes about 1 quart
Wash cherries; cut each cherry with a knife to open up. Place cherries in
aging container. Pour sugar over cherries; stir with a wooden spoon to mix
well. Pour vodka and brandy over cherry mixture. Stir well to combine and
partly dissolved sugar. Cover container and place in a cool place. Stir
regularly in the first month to assist sugar dissolving. Cap, and place in a
cool, dark place for 2 more months.
After aging, pour liqueur through a colander placed in a large mixing bowl.
Discard cherries. Strain again through fine wire mesh or cloth until desired
clarity is reached. Bottle as desired. May be served, but improves with
additional aging. Liqueur is ready in 3 months.
