Some Unique Canning Recipes
Posted 10 July 2003 - 05:19 PM
Just surfing along, and found this cool canning site with some unusual canning recipes. If CM will take me up north to get some cherries (they are in season aren't they), I'm going to can some Brandied Cherries.

I wanted to warn you to hurry up & get your cherries... our local news was saying that Michigan will only have cherries through next week!
Can't be much better in other parts, I'm guessing.

I've been making strawberry jam and strawberry rhubarb.....this is the first time i've made jam and it's a hoot.....waiting for blueberry season to start...
I've got to go back and see if there was a recipe for brandied cherry's on that site.....is that where your getting your recipe?
I've found using the Ball low /no sugar pectin makes the best tasting jam.......have any of you used it and what did you think?

3 1/2 pounds Bing cherries
2 cups granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups water
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 1/4 cups brandy
Rinse, stem and pit cherries. Combine sugar, water and lemon juice in saucepan. Heat to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar. Pour 1/4 cup syrup into clean, hot jar. Fill jars with cherries. Add 1/4 cup brandy and more syrup as necessary to fill each jar, leaving 1/2-inch headspace; seal. Process in a boiling water bath 20 minutes.
Yields 5 pints.

Yep, I think Lowie would like this recipe.
BTW........we got the Limoncello out, and is it ever good over crushed ice on a 105 degree day........just don't drive! One little juice glass was pretty potent.
