Cherry-pit liqueur?

madkittybadkitty | Aug 15, 2009 09:34 AM

so costco had this sale on cherries, 3.67 for 3lb, and i couldn't help but buy two boxes. over the past several days i have had cherries after every meal, clafoutis, and made cherry-pie filling for when i want it and summer is over. that's all good, and i am almost sick of cherries, if that's possible.

thing is - i kept all the cherry pits, hoping to do something liqueur-like with them. does anybody know how to use these? i have a vague recollection that kirsch or kirschwasser is made from them, but have no idea how to do it and what to do with the resulting product. any ideas? :)
