      What to Do With The Cherry Juice?

      Unbelievable, but it appears there is no recipe on the internet for the juice leftover from the pail of cherries I made pies with. The pail says to use the juice but there's way too much of it, and I've learned it's better to drain the cherries. I must have over two litres of sour cherry juice. All the recipes I found call for using the cherries themselves to make juice. One year I tried making cherry sauce/syrup but had to use so much cornstarch to get it to thicken all the taste was lost. Anybody have an idea for the stuff?

      I got six 8" pies and one 9" out of a 4.5 kg pail. All in the freezer waiting for a cooler day to bake one.

      Yummy, that sounds so good! Could you maybe freeze some in ice cube trays and add one or two to other juices or even ice tea? You could sweeten it a bit if you find it very sour.

      Make cherry brandy!! Warm cherry brandy poured over very cold French vanilla ice cream---, of course this has little to no calories.

      Speaking as a native of the National Cherry Capital and sister to a National Cherry Queen, I feel like I need to participate in this conversation.

      I buy sour cherry juice concentrate and use it everywhere - in smoothies, mixed with soda water or coke, on ice cream, in salad dressings (in place of vinegar), cocktails, and in sauces. I love how cherry mixes so well in both sweet and savory food. One of my favorite dinners is to sautee up a chicken breast or pork chop and make a pan sauce with cherry juice, dried cherries, chicken broth, and shallots.

      Cherry juice is very good for you - I take it as a joint supplement. I even give Thor doggy treats with cherry! Maybe freeze some of the juice up as 'pupsicles' for the dogs when it gets hot!

      They drink it in Turkey. It's good.

      If you want to thicken it, boil and use pectin. Cherry jelly would be teriffic.

      It's very watery. I think the ice cube idea is what I will do with it. This is no way near a concentrate. I mixed some sugar in a bit of it and drank it and it's starting to ferment. It was fizzy. I read cherry juice is good for arthritis pain and I just hate to waste the stuff but I think for some of those recipes I'll have to buy more cherries.
