Its monsoon again, and the rains bring with them refreshing respite from that blistering summer heat! And the cherry on top is that it’s cherry season!
Here’s an easy recipe for some delicious homemade cherry jam, perfect for your morning toast. It can be stored for several months, leaving you with the tantalizing taste of sweet cherries way after the season is over!
You Will Need:
- 1 kg Cherries (5 packs), washed, pitted and chopped into chunks
- 2 ½ cups Sugar
- 1 tbsp Lemon Juice
- 1 tbsp Butter
Place cherries in a deep heavy bottom pan, add sugar, lemon juice and stir. Cook on medium-high heat until the sugar is almost dissolved and the mixture comes to a boil. Turn the heat to medium-low and simmer for about 20 minutes. After almost 15 to 20 minutes you will see the mixture has darkened, thickened and reduced. Before taking the jam off the heat, add a tsp of butter to dissolve the foam on top. Let the Jam cool for half an hour before pouring it into a warm, sterilized, airtight jar. Seal and refrigerate. Bon Appetit!
