Elaine’s friend Kim . . is really my friend too but she lives over by Elaine . . loves to cook. Kim . . not Elaine. We’re not going to talk about Elaine’s cooking habits because there are none . . none! Kim on the other hand, could tell you a dozen to die for recipes that she’s made in the past 3 days . . any time you talk to her. She has been making “cherry cordial” which is like a chocolate covered cherry syrup (kinda). It is so good . . so very, very good! Kim shared the recipe because she’s a nice person . . even though she ran over a disputed number of huge orange construction cones with my car once! 🙂
Last week on my way home, exhausted from being gone three days, teaching two lectures and a one day workshop, I kept thinking about Kim’s cherry cordial so I stopped by Wal-Mart and got cherries, then stopped by the grocery store and get vodka and brandy. I’m sure we have some of both but finding it . . I didn’t have the energy.
We have apple cordial and cherry cordial “brewing”. Anyone want to be on my Christmas list this year? 🙂

Cherry cordial–kind of like choc covered cherry syrup–oh please mark me for that one! Yum
I don’t want to wait until Christmas. I’ll clean your sewing room, you give me the cherry and apple cordial. 😉
Sherry V. says
I’ll help clean the sewing room just to get a copy of the recipe for Christmas! he he he
Heck, I’ll even walk Speck in the middle of the night!
You can put me on that list or just the receipe would do.
Linda S says
oh MY! Would you consider sharing the recipe for that cherry cordial? Can you make it with frozen cherries? I froze a bunch of them this year.
Kelly Ann says
I’m thinking the cherry would be o’so yummy…maybe even freeze it a bit to give it slush like appearance…how yummy would that be…
That sounds really tasty!
Oh, yes…would Kim let you share the recipe???
I’ll take cherry please. 🙂
Diana W says
I absolutely want to be on your Christmas list this year! If not, I’ll settle for the recipes……
Since most of us need to clean our sewing rooms, cherry cordials would make the task so much easier and a lot more fun !
Me! I really need to taste these. 😉
Will it be done in time to take some with us to Wichita?
I have a recipe for Lemoncello. Kind of the same thing only with lemons. I just dug it out yesterday, I was thinking about making some for Christmas! We’ll trade.
Never had it–is it sweet-if not I’ll take some-
(My drink is gin and tonic-but can’t even have one right now–it lowers your white blood cells-Crap!!!! Hugs, Bobbie
P.s. Oh Holly, my husband, fixes me a toinc -diet-and lime–it almost is as good as if there was gin in it.
This sounds delicious!! I must now search the web for a recipe 🙂

Speaking of cherry flavor, have any of you tried Blue Bunny Bordeaux Cherry Chocolate. It is my new favorite.
