True love is like a fine wine, the older the better ~ Fred Jacob
This post was pending since Christmas.... Somehow never published it at that time. Since it is Valentine’s Day today I see a lot of red, pink & chocolate colored posts all over the blog world, I thought of adding some red colour to my space as well even though it’s pretty late for a Valentine’s Day special :D....... Wishing all my romantic readers A Happy Valentine’s Day!
Preparation and Cooking Time – about 30 minutes
Ready to use– after 35 days
Yield – 5-6 liters
Fresh cherries - 1kg
Sugar - 1.25kg

- Separate cherries from its stalk and wash the cherries well. Wipe water from each cherry very well and keep aside.
- Boil the water and keep aside to cool down slightly to lukewarm.
- In a big bharani / bottle add sugar, cherries and lukewarm water, stir well. Sprinkle yeast on top and mix well after 5 minutes.
- When the mixture cools down tie the bottle with a clean cloth or close with lid little loose.
- Stir this mixture every day for 5 minutes and try to mash the cherries with the back of the wooden spoon while stirring.
