Pickled Rainier Cherries
If there is one food Jews love, it’s pickled stuff. And bagels, and rugelach, and kugel. Okay lots of things!
-4 8 oz jars
about 50 Rainier cherries, stems trimmed to 1/2 inch, pitting optional
white wine vinegar
small bunch tarragon
divided (I used rainbow peppercorns)
In a medium saucepan, bring vinegar, sugar, salt, a few springs of tarragon and 1 tablespoon of peppercorns to a boil.
Reduce the heat, simmer until the sugar and salt dissolve and set aside to cool.
Meanwhile, load the cherries into a glass jar(s) with 10-12 peppercorns and a few sprigs of tarragon. Pour the cooled brine over the cherries to cover them, place the lid on and refrigerate.
After a few days (I waited a week), your cherries are ready!! (!!!) Yay. You can keep them in the fridge for up to a year, if you don’t gobble them before then.
You can easily halve this recipe, but I don't recommend it!
