Servings: 0
Categories: Non-Alcoholic Beverages

2  pounds  Sugar
2  cups  Water
1  pound  Sour cherries
1/4  teaspoon  Vanilla

1. Use only a porcelain or enamel pan. Boil the sugar and water together for 15 to 20 minutes. Add the sour cherries and boil again gently another 20 to 30 minutes or until the syrup thickens. Strain the liquid into a bowl through a cheesecloth, squeezing the cherries to extract all of the liquid. Add the vanilla extract. Bottle.

2. To serve syrup, add 1-2 Tbsp to to a glass, and fill with cold or sparkling water and ice.

Dried sour cherries may be used instead of fresh ones. They should be soaked in cold water 6 hours or longer. Will kept at room temperature as long as the bottle is sealed. Refrigerate after opening. Can be used as a topping for ice cream, mousses, bavarians or frozen desserts.
