Bourbon-Cherries

Yield :

  • 8 servings
  • Serving Size : 1 stuffed mushroom
  • Smartpoints : 5

Ingredients :

  • 3 1/2 cups bourbon
  • 2/3 cup granulated white sugar
  • 4 cups fresh sweet cherries, washed, pitted, and stems removed

    Place the lids on tight and store the cherries in the refrigerator.
  • They should be used within one year.
