Cherry Preserves

  • Cherries, stoned
  • Sugar
Wash, pick and stone the cherries, saving the juice.

Allow 1 pound of sugar to each pound of fruit. Boil the juice and sugar to a thick syrup. Put into two equal parts of the cherries and stew until nearly done. Take them out with a perforated spoon and lay on dishes. Put in the other half and let them stew for as long as the first. Take out and lay in dishes.

Meantime, boil the syrup gently. When the cherries are cool, place them back in the syrup and boil for a short time. Pour in a sizeable bowl and let cool. Put in glass jars and cover tightly.

*Scarlet short stems and large wax cherries are best for preserving.

Are you the next Rascal? We sure hope so. When you become a Rascal, you will join a group of excellent cooks. Cooks who go above and beyond, and look deep within themselves to redefine the boundaries of culinary success. Well that's a bit dramatic - our Rascals don't really do that. But they do have fun, share recipes, and enjoy excellent tools for organizing and printing recipes. So, we think it makes a lot of sense to join the Rascal. And we think it would be really poetic if you become the next Rascal. We hope you think the same thing!
