2Tbsp Pickling Salt

1C Light Brown Sugar

Stem & pit cherries, then fill your 1/2 pint jars with them. Combine the rest of the ingredients in a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer for 10 minutes. Pour the hot liquid over the cherries. (I added 1 clove of the garlic to each jar.) Let cool. Refrigerate. They should last for about a month – if you want to do a bigger batch, or store longer, you’ll likely want to seal the jars using a hot canning method.
