Kebab karaz is traditionally made with special sour cherries that grow around Aleppo called Washneh that are harvested during cherry season in June. They’re known as Saint Lucie’s cherries in English. They can be difficult to find outside of Syria fresh or frozen morello cherries can be substituted.
