      1/2   lb           Bing Cherries
      1/2   lb           Granulated sugar
    2       c            Vodka
   Pick plump, shiny, well-coloured fruit with green stems, avoiding dark
   coloured stems. Season is late April to August.
   DO NOT rince until use. Use cherries as soon as ripe.
   Wash, stem, and towel dry cherries and place in a jar. Pour sugar over the
   cherries, followed by the vodka. DO NOT mix them. Cover with lid and store
   on a shelf for 3 months without disturbing, then strain. Liqueur is ready
   to serve.
   Recipe can be varied with extracts (chocolate, mint, orange, etc). Add
   approximately 1 teaspoon of extract to finished liqueur and let sit for
   another few weeks. Experiment with small portions of flavorings to find
   your desired taste. Container: Wide mouth quart jar.
