Whole Cherry Jam

Makes approx 500g jar
by Tenina Holder

I love cherries, anyway they come. I always have. I love the slight almondy bitterness of a sour cherry, I love the bitterness of a maraschino cherry, with or without the drink to go with it, and I love fresh cherries any way I can get them. When I was at university in the USA my friends mother had a massive cherry tree and we were the chief cherry pickers!! Those cherries are still in my memory and are the cherries by which all others are judged and sadly fall short! They were the size of small plums. I would have climbed any tree to get them...and we did. I gorged on cherries many a day in those years!

They are extremely expensive to buy where I live, but when you can get them at a good price, MAKE THIS JAM...it will keep indefinitely. Then go and make the Cherry Streusel Scones
