I planted a couple of sour pie cherry trees- "Morelos" to the UK contingent. Trees are producing now, and the wild turkeys didn't come devour all the cherries (yet!) as they did last year. What to do with the fruit? If you're too lazy/pressed for time to remove the stones??? Cherry bounce! Rinse the cherries, remove any stems. place about 4 cups of cherries in a half gallon mason jar. Add 2 cups (about 1 lb.) white sugar. Pour in enough at least half way decent brandy to bring level up to 8 cups (probably 800ml or so). Put the jars somewhere out of the sun and cool to age. After the fruit sinks to the bottom (perhaps 5 to 6 months), use the cherry infused brandy for your occasion. My sister turned me on to this decoction, she likes to make "brandy old fashioneds" for Thanksgiving with this as the base. She also gave me a cup of hot apple cider with a cinnamon stick and an orange spice tea bag along with a large jigger of cherry bounce for a bad cold last winter, it improved my quality of life markedly... After you use up the brandy, remove pits from cherries and add them to fruit cakes.
