Cherries in Red Wine

Cherries are one of the few fruits that cannot be replicated anywhere else in the world outside of season. They are a seasonal treat with “wintry” spices like cinnamon.


Cherries in Red Wine



  • 2.2 lbs cherries (frozen)
  • 1 cup red wine
  • ¾ cup sugar and spices
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 5 cloves
  • Pinch of mulling spices



Bring to a slow boil wine, sugar and spices. Add cherries and poach slowly for five minutes, then remove from heat, jar and store in refrigerator.
