Anyone who knows me, is well aware of my tendency to wax poetic about virtually anything within the realm of the baking and pastry worlds. However, there is beauty in brevity, and this Cherry Preserve story is the epitome of that notion. So basically, I saw this heap of bright ruby sunshine at the market and could not resist turning them into preserves. The End. Okay, maybe just a few more details…Ingredients:
4 cups (225 grams) fresh cherries, pitted
1 lemon, juiced
1 cup (227 grams) granulated sugar
How to use them:
Place the pitted cherries and lemon juice into a medium pot.Cook the cherries on medium low heat for 15 minutes, stirring frequently.Stir in 1 cup of sugar and cook the cherries for 5 more minutes, continuing to stir frequently.That is it friends! We now have exquisite homemade cherry preserves. Pour into 1 large or 2 small sterilized jars and enjoy on your morning toast, drizzled over ice cream, layered between a your favorite cake or atop this White Chocolate Vanilla Bean Panna Cotta.
