Spread the love this festive season with these homemade vodka cherries from Coles! These cherries are delicious served with ice-cream, and a little of the syrup can be added to champagne for a cocktail.
Wash and dry cherries, remove the stems and pips. Wash 4 x 1-cup capacity jars (or any number of jars equalling 1 litre capacity) and their lids. Place into a just-warm oven to dry and sterilise.
Combine sugar and 1 cup water in a small saucepan. Stir over low heat, without boiling, until sugar has dissolved, then bring to the boil. Add cherries, vanilla bean and cinnamon quill and return to a simmer. Cook for 5 minutes. Stir in vodka.
Spoon cherries into jars, and cover with liquid. Seal tightly with a lid. Label, date, and store in the fridge for up to 4 weeks.
