The recipe is simple. Wash cherries and remove the stone. Cook the fruit with 1 dl of water until soft. Add 600 to 700 g sugar on each 1 kg of cherries. You can add some special gelatine powder mixture for jams and marmalades. Cook the jam until it becomes thick.
In the evening, a friend of mine brought me one kilo of raspberries and I made another two jars of jam! I used to have raspberries in my garden but I eradicate them because they were too old and messy. I am planing to plant new raspberries this autumn.
