Cherry Pickle

Last week I got some cherries from my cousin and they were sour and very sharp in taste. I have seen people soaking cherries and in pickling juice and using. But, I wanted try out the real achar or pickle out of it. This  Cherry Pickle recipe is a typical Kerala style achar recipe with a dominant flavor of garlic in it.

I know there are so many regional variations of cherries are available and unfortunately I could not get the proper name of this variety. If anyone knows it,  please update me or  whenever  I could find it, I will come back update you all.

Do try out this Cherry Pickle recipe and do let me know your comments in the comments section below.
