- 1kg cherries, stoned weight (you'll need to buy about 1¼kg, then de-stone them)
- 500g jam sugar (the one that has pectin added)
- juice ½ lemon
- 4 tsp brandy
To sterilise your jars, wash well in hot, soapy water, then leave to dry in a low oven. Alternatively, run them through a dishwasher cycle. Fill the jars while they’re still warm.
