How to Make Brandied Cherries

brandy peddlerWhat could sound more delicious than some warm Brandied Cherries served over some vanilla ice cream?

How about sipping on some cherry brandy for an after dinner liqueur?

How to Brandy Cherries:

Making Brandied Cherries is quite a bit quicker to do than when using peaches or apricots.

The cherries don’t need to be processed with a canner to preserve them. You simply skip that step and go straight to aging the jar of cherries.
