Oh O.K then


Brandied Cherries.


250 ml brandy


600g cherries


115g caster sugar


1/4 tsp grated nutmeg


1 tsp vanilla extract


1 stick of cinnamon


100 ml cold water


2 tsp lemon juice/ 1/2 tsp lemon rind


Bring to the boil the water, sugar, lemon juice and rind, vanilla and cinnamon. Add the washed and destalked cherries, and simmer for 5 mins. Remove from heat, remove cinnamon stick and cool a little before adding the brandy.


Pack into sterilized jars and cover with the liquor.


As an aside peeps, the cherries haven't been stoned, so don't forget... you mustn't eat the stones!!!! (Re story of guy who swallowed 3 stones not long ago and nearly died from cyanide poisoning! Just thought I had better mention it!!)


I will now drink the rest of the Brandy 'cos it goes off very quickly doesn't it??
