Juice extracted from Tart Cherries

Reaching out to find out what can be done with the juice extracted from tart cherries, have already made about 30 jars of jelly. Would prefer to find another use for it. Thanks to all!

  1. reduce it to a syrup, and use in all sorts of sweet & savory preparations! glaze meat or fish, stir into oatmeal, yogurt, ricotta or cottage cheese, drizzle over ice cream or frozen yogurt. you can sweeten it with honey, agave syrup, or plain old sugar if you prefer.

    since the tartness is similar to pomegranate, you can apply the same ideas we've discussed for using pom syrup/glaze/molasses. ideas here:

    and if you don't want to use it all now, you can freeze some for the future. try portioning into an ice cube tray, and once frozen, store the cubes in a zipper bag. whenever you need some you can thaw a couple of cubes...or use them as ice in sparkling water or cocktails. (which reminds me, a splash of the juice in club soda or seltzer is a great summer refresher. you can also stir some into lemonade.)

    1. Chill and drink as is, or cut with sparkling water.

      1. Mix with mascarpone cheese for some stuffed french toast, Or use in place of lemon juice with sugar and water on ice with some great rum or vodka for a nice afternoon beverage.
