We found a sour cherry tree in our hood literally brimming with cherries... and I tried this recipe as a way to use some of them up--doubled the recipe and canned it using a water bath for 10 minutes per load of pint jars. We just popped open a jar and made sour cherry fizzes with some pellegrino. Delicious! And I'm super-glad I canned some for consumption throughout the summer. Thanks for sharing!!
I made 1/2 the recipe. Putting the cherries through my juicer to extract the juice. I made a granita with some and will try the drink soon. Thanks.
