Easy cherry jam
Plentiful cherries left over from Christmas are everywhere at the shops. They are lovely, ripe and cheap; perfect for jam. This easy cherry jam comes up delicious and thick, perfect to spread over scones, toast and pancakes. Thermomix instructions also included.

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes


650g of ripe cherries with stones and stems removed
180g (1 cup) The Sugar Breakup Dextrose
Zest of one lemon
Juice of 1 lemon

To Do:

  1. Find a large jar, give it a good wash then place the jar & lid in a bowl and fill to the brim with boiling water (just to ensure they are extra clean).
  2. Place the cherries, lemon juice and rind into a blender and purée. Then add the purée and The Sugar Breakup Dextrose to a medium saucepan.
  3. Boil over a medium heat for around 45-60 minutes, stirring occasionally until jam starts to thicken.
  4. Carefully empty the water from the jar, pour jam into the warm jar, allow to cool, pop the lid on and store in the fridge.
  5. Enjoy jammy goodness on everything! Toast, scones, hot cross buns, baked into biscuits. So many ways.
