WIP on Wednesday - Drunken Cherries
We've had a very cold and late spring/summer in Idaho and my cherries are 3 weeks late. We usually pick tomatoes, not cherries on the 4th of July.
Yesterday, I posted on my Nutrition Facebook page : "I just picked a bushel of cherries from the tree in my back yard. What's your favorite thing to do with sweet cherries?" I reported on the fate of the first half bushel on my Nutrition Blog. But Jeri's advice to "soak them in vodka and eat them" stuck with me all day. So I stopped at the liquor store on the way home.
Mmmmm. These are going to be really good in time for Christmas gift giving.
(If you live within a couple hundred miles of Boise, you might be able to win some of these yummies as part of a fruit & veggie challenge on the nutrition blog. Some dried cherries are in the works for non-local winners since I've never found a satisfactory way to mail home-jarred food.)
