Cherry Bombs

i thought i’d do a different spin on this weeks food porn post and give you guys a recipe Paw-Paw (RIP) passed on to me a while back. it’s VERY easy to make and will get you HAMMERED. you will need:

– 1 16oz mason jar.

– 2 1/2 cups stemmed cherries (whole).

– 1/4 cup sugar (1/2 cup for a quart mason jar).

– 1 bottle of everclear or generic grain alcohol.

add fruit to jar, leave about 1/4 empty. add sugar, pour in alcohol with about 1″ of the bottle empty. the berries will expand and absorb the hooch. cover and date the lid. it must sit for 6 months. around once a week, open the jar and “burp” it to let the gasses out, if you don’t i will eventually break the glass. also, gently agitate until the sugar is completely dissolved.

now, this shit is STRONG. i had a girl get lit off 3 cherries. srs-lee. the beauty is that you can use any type of small berry you like. i currently have: cherry, cranberry, blackberry, mango, and granny smith apple (i used the precut supermarket mango and apple).

cranberry, mango, blackberry, and cherry.

cranberry, mango, blackberry, and cherry.

    Where do you store these? I assume temperature / UV exposure could effect the fermentation/ absorption process.

    Got introduced to them and Fireball whiskey in Dubois, Wyoming. They don’t tell you it hits you faster around 7000 feet!

    It has been my experience that every Southern recipe with ‘mason jar’ as an ingredient is just plain AWESOME.
