You will need
- 3-liter of the Bank;
- 2 tbsp. of ripe cherries;
- 1 tbsp. sugar;
- boiling water;
- peel of one lemon;
- a warm blanket.
Berries rinse well under running water and sort of stalks, leaves and other debris. Sure that wasn't wrinkled or spoiled fruit.
Put the cherries on some time aside and prepare the syrup. Place on low heat a saucepan with two liters of water. When the water begins to warm, add the sugar and stir well.
Bring the syrup to a boil. Then add a little vanilla and lemon peel. Cook for another 2-3 minutes and remove the pan from the heat. Also, if you wish we can also add the spices. For example, cloves or ginger.
In parallel with the syrup, prepare a jar in which to store the compote. Thoroughly wash it with hot water with detergent for dishes. Then sterilize a convenient way for you – in the oven or over steam. Then put in a glass container with cherries. Pour the cooked berries with the syrup, after taking out a lemon peel.
The syrup should fill the jar to the brim, so she turned out all the air. Roll up your compote rail cover. Wrap your head with a blanket and put in a warm place for 2-3 days. Ensure that the cap is not swollen.
Then the compote can be lowered into the cellar or put in the pantry. Winter, before serving, the berries of drink you can put in a bowl and serve as a separate dish. Also they can decorate the dessert.
Don't forget that canned berries or fruit you should drink throughout the year. Otherwise you risk to poison a drink for themselves and their families. After all, the seed contains the poison prussic acid. And after 12 months of storage of juice it goes from seed to fruit. If you're afraid that all of the supplies for winter your family not master in one year, then before you put the fruits and berries in the jar, carefully remove the seeds from them.
Instead of cherries for cooking compote you can use any other berries and fruits or even make cuts.
