If you keep the proportion of fruit to water low, you can puree it and voila – you’ll have a spread or jam and can use it accordingly. If you add onions, spices, vinegar – you’ve made chutney.

  1. Pit a lot of cherries.
  2. Place in pan and cover with water.
  3. Add sugar or honey as desired, to taste.
  4. Slowly bring to boil, turn heat down and simmer 5-10 min. Do not overcook.
  5. Eat warm or cold.


Get creative and try adding other fruits, spices (cinnamon, vanilla) and herbs (mint).
