My great-grandma used to make this cherry jam, and grandma still does. It is 100% pure natural goodness, there isn’t even any artificial pectin added. During the making of this jam a lot of cherry juice will be produced which you can also pasteurize into a syrup the same way as the jam. The syrup is lovely in teas, or as a soak for cakes, or just with water for a cherry flavored drink. My favorite is adding it to a hot cup of black tea.
