Servings 16 ounces


  • cups bing cherries pitted and halved (be sure to cut them before measuring- this will affect the measurement)
  • cups granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • pinch salt
  • 3 tbsp pectin
  • 2 tbsp raw honey


  • Place the prepared cherries in a food processor and pulse a couple of times. Just enough to make into a spreadable consistency but still leave some chunks in there too.
  • Transfer the processed cherries to a large pot. I used a shallow stockpot.
  • Add the sugar, lemon juice & salt.
  • Bring to a boil over high heat - stirring frequently to prevent sticking.
  • Continue to cook until the mixture darkens - about 10 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and whisk in pectin & honey.
  • Allow the mixture to cool for about 5 minutes before carefully transferring to jars or other freezer-safe containers.
  • Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks, in the freezer for up to 6 months.
