Hi I'm looking for some place that sells bottled sour cherries, doesn't matter the brand but the recipe suggest Morello....

    Any Russian store will do, really. Sour cherries are a staple ingredient for things like vareniki so you shouldn't see them for much more than $3 for a big jar (but a lot is liquid). However I have not had a pleasant experience at the snowdon store ("Ella's" I guess) because the clerk has always been so unfriendly and not willing to say hello and thank you the two times I've visited.

      I bought some from a U-Pick farm last summer. It's kind of far, but, if you're interested, here is their info:

        (for future reference...) Pretty sure they have them at both branches of Ella's Deli (Snowdon metro, across Queen Mary - and Cote Saint-Luc road, corner Westminster)

        They may also have some at Batory Euro-Deli on St. Viateur.

        I would not expect to pay $6 at either of these places. Probably more in line with the other Russian place mentioned.

          Thanks!! I was all set to go to one of those places and I ended up finding them in Fruiterie Mile End (in case anyone else is looking)

            so I also went to the Russian store on Somerled (had to go next door for a kids party) and the sour cherries were $3.50 whereas at fruiterie mile end I paid $6 :(

            You can also get them at the Russian store on Somerled where Kidnasium and the SAQ are- one block west of Grand.

              I've seen a selection at Bucharest on Decarie but I don't know what kind or brand.

                I'm pretty sure you can get them at Akhavan Supermarket in NDG.
