Any time you might eat a pickle or olive, you can eat a sour cherry! Set them on the table with your relish tray at your next party. They're really pretty and REALLY sour. Yum!
fresh sweet cherries, washed with stems removed
Fill a clean jar with cherries. Leave about 1/2" - 1" at the top of the jar. Fill the jar with enough white vinegar to cover the cherries. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt for each cup of cherries used. Put the lid on and swirl it around to dissolve the salt. Let it sit in the fridge for several weeks.
I left mine for 3 months and they were perfect. Sprinkle with salt before serving.
