Remove the stalks from cherries, wash, stone and halve them.
Weigh the fruits and add the same quantity of sugar. Cook over a low heat until the fruits melt.
Pour the mixture into very clean jars.


  • - If you think to eat this jam a short time later, you could not sterilize it. On the contrary you'd sterilize your jam boiling the jars for 60 minutes. But remember to cover completely your jars with water.
  • - You can modify the quantity of sugar according to the cherries you use and your taste.
