Instructions Jump to Ingredients ↑

  1. Using a vegetable peeler, remove orange peel in wide strips, making sure to avoid the white pith.

  2. Place peels, sugar, water, allspice, and nutmeg in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the mixture comes to a boil. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature, about 40 minutes.

  3. Place a fine-mesh strainer over a container with a spout and strain the syrup. Reserve the orange peels and discard the remaining solids. Add brandy to the syrup and stir to combine.

  4. Place cherries in a 1-quart container with a tightfitting lid, threading the orange peels throughout the cherries. Pour the brandy syrup over the cherries, cover, and refrigerate for at least 5 days before serving. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.
