Mmmm. This was certainly a tasty treat, if a little rich. I was unable to find dried cherries; in fact supermarkets seemed a little low on cherries at all (I guess they're a very seasonal thing here in New Zealand, I usually see them around Christmas time, and even then they're imported). I used cherries that were in a glass jar in liquid, but they seemed to work alright (I drained the juice first, and let them sit for a while before soaking).

It also took a bit to find some kriek lambic, but I found it after trying a couple of different stores. I really liked the taste of it, I haven't had anything like it before.

An enjoyable treat which I shall have to make again at some point.
