Cherry jam

Our favorite cherry turns into the most delicious jam, and becomes the perfect accompaniment for toast or strained yogurt!


  • 3 kg of cherries hard, without their seeds
  • 2 kg of raw sugar
  • 1½ cup of rum


  1. Remove the stalks from the cherries. With the special tool you take out the seeds over a bowl to keep their liquids that you want for the jam.
  2. Put the cherries in a wide saucepan to boil without any water, but with their on liquids, until they are drained enough. Press them with a fork to melt them a little or melt them in the food processor before boiling. Then add the sugar and once melted add the rum.
  3. Allow the jam to boil over medium heat, stirring frequently with a wooden spoon. Once it starts to splash and boil, take out a spoon on a saucer and let it cool to see how tight it is.
  4. You have the glass jars ready, washed, after putting them in the oven at 100oC to dry and sterilise for 30 minutes.
  5. Fill the jars with the hot jam and close them well. Leave them to cool so you can keep them out of the fridge for a long time.
