Cherry picking Biggaråer: This years Cherries….


This year brought us a lot of cherries, something that really makes you feel like summer… I got to thinking, “What to do to kind some of this cherry cheer for later in the year?” and finally decided to attempt to preserve some in a non specific mixture of:

Brandy (Yes, the liquor)

Agave nectar

A splash of brown sugar (dissolved into enough water to cover cherries, after you add the other ingredients)

A few sprigs of morrocan mint we have growing out back…

Throw everything along with the cherries in a very clean jar, and seal.


Later this winter, I expect to be getting a nice little buzz on while having a couple of these bad boys on top of ice cream!

Don’t forget to remove the pits!
