Try this refreshing cherry beverage and sweeten your summer with locally foraged fruit. Yield: 1 quart to 1 gallon.

Begin with approximately 5 cups of ripe wild cherries, deseeded. Place in a pot and cover with spring water or filtered water.

Bring to a boil, and gently mash the fruits. Let mix simmer about 30 minutes.



Strain liquid through colander or cheesecloth (use the discarded pulp to make pemmican).

Serve immediately, or store briefly in refrigerator in glass jars. Sweeten with honey if desired, and serve chilled.
