Total time
This year I wanted to do something that the kids could eat spooned over ice cream, so it was this simple, but not boring, cherries in syrup.
Recipe type: Canning
Serves: 2 pints
  • 2 lbs sweet red cherries, pitted
  • ¾ cup honey
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 5 ¾ cup water
  • ½ vanilla bean
  1. Combine honey, sugar, and water in a large pot or Dutch oven. Stir over low heat until sugar and honey have dissolved. Add cherries and vanilla bean.
  2. Cook over medium-low heat until cherries are warmed through.
  3. Remove vanilla bean. Ladle hot cherries into jars and cover with syrup, leaving ½ inch headspace.
  4. Remove air bubbles. Wipe jar rims with a damp paper towel.
  5. Top with two-piece lids and rings, and process in a water bath for 10 minutes.
