Dried Cherries

  • 3 pounds of Cherries
  • 1 pound of brown sugar
  • Loaf sugar
Stone the cherries, being careful to preserve the juice. Take one pound of brown sugar to three pounds of fruit; boil the juice and sugar together; place the cherries in and stew them fifteen minutes; take them out and drain off the syrup; lay the cherries on dishes, and place them in the sun to dry. Pour the syrup over the fruit, a little at a time, as it dries; whilst drying, the fruit must be frequently turned. When the syrup is entirely used, place the cherries in jars, sprinkling a small portion of loaf sugar between the layers.
