Fresh Cherries in Grappa
Choose the largest and firmest cherries and clip off leaving a little of the stems attached to each.
Fill a 1 quart glass jar with the fruit and add the sugar and enough grappa to cover the cherries.
Cover the mixture and shake gently to dissolve the sugar.
Place the jar in sunlight with its cover ajar and let stand for 1 week.
Cover tightly and store in cool dark place at least 3 months.
