I get buckets of Cherries every year from my Allotment plot, so I’m constantly devising new recipes to make use of them. This Cherry Jam is one of my favourite Jam recipes, rich, sweet and absolutely delicious and only 3 ingredients!

Give it a try and let me know how you got on in the comments, or tag me on Instagram, I would love to see your creations!

Cherry Jam


500 g of Cherries

500g of Jam Sugar

Juice from 1 lemon


    First put a saucer in the freezer (this is to test the jam is set later on)

    Put all the ingredients in a pan, cook on a medium heat for 35-50 minutes, stirring frequently until thick and glossy.

    After 35 minutes retrieve the plate from the freezer- spoon on a small amount and let it rest for a minute, gently push the jam with your fingertip. if it starts to wrinkle it's done..if it doesn't, it needs to boil a little longer
