I would like to add some cherries to my brownies. At this time of year only dried, frozen, or jarred cherries are available. If dried cherries were added to my brownie recipe, would the recipe have to be changed in any way?
It seems that dried cherries would have to be rehydrated before being added to the batter. What's the best way to rehydrate the cherries? Perhaps in brandy or some other liquor? Water - although that seems like it would dilute the cherry flavor?
With rehydrated cherries would the liquid in the original recipe have to be adjusted, and if so, how?
Or, do the cherries even need to be rehydrated?
