Let's make cherry jam
  • 1 kg pitted cherries
  • 1 kg Chelsea Jam Setting Sugar
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  1. Place the cherries in a large saucepan or a jam pan.
  2. Take a potato masher or large spoon to squash the cherries. This will release lots of juice of their juices.
  3. Squeeze 1 lemon into the cherries and simmer over a low heat, for 5-10 minutes or until the cherries are tender.
  4. Then add the Jam Setting Sugar and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until sugar dissolves. You will need to continually stir this as it cooks.
  5. Turn up the heat and boil for another 5 minutes or until it reaches jam setting point.
  6. Remove from heat and set aside to cool a little bit, then spoon the warm jam into sterilised and warm jars.
