Cherry Melomelancholy

1/2 GallonTub – Edmonton Cherries

2 cup – Water + top off jug

4 cup – Honey

Dash of Salt

Pit and macerate cherries in pot.

Cook and add Honey.

Strain into jug, squeeze out as much liquid from cherries. Return some to jug and toss the rest.

Top up with water, pitch yeast.


Still aging: So far, much drier than desired. Beautiful aroma. Tastes a lot like a red wine, but with light pink colour.
