And here how to do it:


– 1,5 kg fresh or frozen sour cherries

– 5 cups sugar


– Juice the cherries in a juicer and pour into a preserving pan

– Add the sugar and 5 1/2 cup water and boil on a medium-high heat for about 10-12 minutes

– Remove from the heat and cool before using

>> serve it super fresh with a lot of ice. Usually Iranians like to mix the syrup with 2 parts water to 1 part syrup. Mix it your own taste.
