Aside from spreading it over English muffins, croissants & toast, there are many ways in which it may be used in the bakeshop. Summer pies, tarts & galettes benefit tremendously from it’s sweet, sour flavor contrast.

makes 2 cups

3 lbs fresh sweet dark cherries, pitted
2/3 cup sugar
3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 cup water

Bring all of the ingredients to a boil in a 4-quart saucepan over Medium heat. Reduce the heat to Medium-Low & cook, stirring occasionally, 45 minutes or until reduced & thickened. Do not walk away from the mixture during the cooking process. As it comes to a rolling boil, it will reach close to the top of the pan. Reduce the heat & allow it to cook down a bit. Stir the mixture constantly the last 10 minutes of the cooking time. Once the process is complete, expect the jam to cover 1/5 of the bottom of the pan. Remove the mixture from the heat. Transfer to a small bowl. Chill 2 hours or cover & chill up to 5 days.

How To Remove The Pit From Fresh Cherries

The pits can be removed from a pound of fresh cherries in less than 10 minutes. For even quicker results, traditional cherry pitters & models that remove the pit from larger quantities at one time may be purchased from fine cook stores.

Rinse the cherries under cool tap water. Remove the stems. Hold the cherry at a 45 degree angle while resting it on a cutting board. Place a small round pastry tip over your thumb & press the it firmly into the stem end. Push the pit through to the other side onto the cutting board. If you’re having trouble removing the pit, score the base of the fruit with a knife.
