Sour Cherry Preserves
(Vissino Glyko)
What You Need:
  • 1 pound fresh black or red sour cherries
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cups sugar
  • tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  • How To Cook:
    1. Wash and pit cherries, reserving pits in a small bowl. Add water to the pits and set aside.

    2. Put 1 cup sugar in a medium-sized saucepan. Place a layer of cherries on top, and then ˝ cup sugar, another layer of cherries, and remaining sugar.

    3. Strain water from cherry pits, and add to the cherries. Let mixture stand for 1 hour, then bring to a boil and simmer for 30 minutes, or until syrup thickens to consistency of honey.

    4. Stir gently at intervals while cooking and skim off any scum that rises to top. Add lemon juice at end of cooking time to prevent syrup from crystallizing. Spoon into sterilized jars, cool, and refrigerate.

    To Make: four 8-Ounce jars
