Ratepayers' Cherry Vodka

You will need:

about 2lbs of municipal cherries  (I get mine from a tree in the park. There's still loads left.)

about 1 lb of sugar (except I use less because I like it to taste a bit tart.)

10 fl oz of water

2 x 70 cl bottles of the cheapest vodka you can find

Make slits in the cherries. Put them in a pot, add sugar and water, bring to the boil and simmer gently for a few minutes until softened.

Divide cherries and liquid into two Kilner jars. (I use cheaper equivalent.)  Top each one up with vodka, seal when cool and leave for a minimum of 4 weeks.  (Or longer.)

And there you have Ratepayers' Cherry Vodka - except in my case this is a bit of a misnomer as the park is just within the Bristol boundary and my house is a few doors inside South Gloucestershire so they're actually even freer than that.
