Cherry Preserves

Contributed by: Thelma L. Carlile - Mealtime Memories


  • 5 cups pitted ripe tart red cherries
  • 5 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 package powdered fruit pectin
  • 3/4 cup water


Measure fruit by firmly packing without crushing. Combine the cherries and the sugar in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.

Remove from heat and let stand at room temperature 4 to 5 hours. Return to heat and bring to a full rolling boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.

Remove from heat. Mix powdered fruit pectin with water in a small saucepan and bring to a boiling; boil hard one minute, stirring constantly.

Add to hot fruit and mix well. Skim off foam and stir and skim 10 minutes to prevent floating fruit. Ladle into hot sterlized jars or glasses and seal immediately.

Store in refrigerator.

NOTE. You can use the loose packed frozen cherries. But do try these preserves.
