Preserved cherries

Posted on Updated on

While we were in Hobart on holiday we visited Big Fat Pig’s stand at the Taste festival and tried out the cheese platter. Not only did it have a range of cheeses and pork but there were some fantastic pickled cherries which inspired us to make our own.

As it’s such a good year for cherries we had no trouble buying over a kilo of good quality fresh cherries for less than $10 from Leichhardt. We pickled them using a very simple recipe found in a magazine. I also have a favourite recipe from a French cookbook for brandied cherries so we have a few saved away for desert later in the year!
