One of the customers that insisted on my bringing wild cherries to the market didn’t come to get their liter. So much the better – we made some more cherry juice out of them.

This is the easiest way to use them.
Just:
– clean away all the scrap,
– boil in a little water,
– mash with a potato masher
– pour into a cheese cloth
– we let drip all night
– bring drippings to a boil
– add sweetener and mix
– let cool
– use, or
– put into plastic bottles
– and into the freezer for later use

This makes a concentrated juice that can be used as a flavoring or a drink (diluted with water). Nice, because you don’t have to pit the cherries. This method can be used with any kind of cherry or other fruit. Wild prunes and sloe make excellent juice.
