Rosemary and Juniper Pickled Cherries

This is a more savory version of pickled cherries than the Pickled Rainer Cherry recipe that was posted a couple of days ago.

These cherries would be great as a side to lamb, wild game, duck and of course as an accompaniment to a cheese platter or as a sauce on an olive oil cake.
