2 pounds sweet cherries, pitted and coarsely chopped
1 large Granny Smith apple, cored and chopped
How to Make It
Combine all ingredients in a large, heavy saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer until slightly thick and reduced to 4 cups (about 50 minutes), skimming foam from surface of mixture occasionally. Cool; pour into an airtight container. (Mixture will thicken as it cools.) Cover and chill.
Note: Refrigerate preserves in an airtight container for up to three weeks.
This spread was excellent, sweet yet spicy, however instead of cherries i used rasberries and to make up for the consistency added 1 cup more than called for and it came out delicious! also instead of just chopping i finely diced everything and it came out much better as a spread that way. It's very easy to make, you just have to remember how to seal your mason jar so the contents don't have to be chilled till opened.
