Pickled fruit is a great way to add a sweet-tangy flare to all kinds of dishes. Serve these pickled cherries on salads, creamy dips, roasted meats, vegetables and more.


  • ½ cup apple cider vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon Morton kosher salt 
  • 5 turns of cracked black pepper
  • ½ cup sweetened dried cherries


Combine all of the ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer and cook 1 minute; remove from heat and let steep 15 minutes. Use as desired, or transfer to a glass container and let cool completely before covering tightly with a lid.

Store at room temperature for up to 2 days or in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.


Salt: if you’re using Diamond Crystal kosher salt, use 1 teaspoon.
