Quick-Pickled Cherries


This Quick-Pickled Cherries recipe is a great one to have up your sleeve during cherry season. These pickled cherries are fantastic on a charcuterie board, with meat or in salads and sandwiches. They bring a little sweet yet spiced pop to whatever dish you pair them with.

To make these spiced pickled cherries, start by placing everything except the cherries in a small pan and bring to a boil. Place the cherries in a large jar and pour over the pickling mixture. Place the lid on the jar and allow it to cool before chilling. These cherries taste better after a week when the vinegar has had a chance to mellow.

To make my version of Quick-Pickled Cherries, you will need the following ingredients:

Tasted really funky I personally won't be making this again I think it ruins the flavor that the cherries have naturally and makes it bitter/sour.

At first I thought this said "quick picked cherries" and was thinking it had something to do with taking out the seeds from the cherries lol.
