    does this not need a waterbath process?

    I just made these last night, and they turned out nice. Two things: 1.) I added some crushed vitamin C tablets to the lemon juice and water components and let the pitted cherries soak in this mixture while I finished the rest. This was the guidance I found on some home canning websites, and it worked well for preventing browning of the fruits. 2.) The recipe calls for a much greater volume of soaking liquor than is actually needed to top-off the jars. I halved the suggested volume, and still had a full qt. of soaking liquid leftover after finishing 5 pints. Otherwise, the extra liquor makes a nice base for a cherry flavored Clover Club.

    Paragraph 4 - "Bring to a boil". This is just the water, lemon juice, and sugar, yes? Everything above , except the cherries, is the "spice bundle". Should that be in a cheese-cloth bag or something? Thanks!

    What if you finish the process by traditional canning in boiling water (10-20 minutes depending on altitude)? Does the alcohol dissipate, or would this be recommended for preserving?

    And if one lives in Texas, where fresh tart cherries are never to be found?
