Cornelian Cherry fruits could be conserved in the dried form too. I recall enjoying them a lot, when the grandma of my neighbor used to bring them to her. Cornelian Cherries could be processed as Cornelian Cherries Jam and Cornelian Brandy (raki). Cornelian Cherries Jam is uniquely tasty, as it comes a little sour. Cornelian Brandy is transparent, similar to filtered water, and is very healthy to be used as treatment for the body: one teaspoon per day.
