A fabulous addition to your Christmas menu. I found this on the net somewhere.


  1. Put everything but the cherries in a saucepan, and bring to the boil, simmer gently for about 10 minutes.
  2. While the mixture is simmering, prick each cherry three or four times with a sharp wooden skewer.
  3. Add the cherries to the simmering liquid and remove from heat. Allow to cool.
  4. Put the cherries and liquid in a jar and allow to stand at room temperature overnight. Store in the fridge until use.

These are fabulous alongside pork roast & dressing or anytime you want something to "cut" through the richness of some meals! A VERY unique dish for my part of the world!

Woohoo this is awesome! A little zippy, a little sweet, a LOT wonderful! HINT: make a triple batch so maybe you'll have enough to share! ;) This is very easy. DH wants to pit the cherries first next time. Thanks, Jewelies!
