"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway
In September, place 1 quart sour Door County cherries in large glass jar with lid. [I use a commercial pickle jar]. Add 2 cups sugar and one fifth of your favorite brandy--Southern Comfort is the best. Place in cool, dark place to ferment until Thanksgiving. In November, strain well. Pour into decorative decantor and enjoy on the rocks or up! Fabulous!
