  • 3 cups pitted fresh cherries
  • 2 Tbl lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbl corn starch
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp butter, unsalted *optional


  1. Add all of the ingredients (except the butter)to a medium saucepan and bring to a boil.
  2. Once it comes to a boil, reduce the heat to medium low and continue to stir. The mixture will be clumpy at first but keep stirring gently.
  3. Cook for about 15 min or until the mixtures becomes thick and the cherries have softened. If the mixture gets too thick add a Tbl or so more water.
  4. If the mixture starts to foam, add the butter and stir.
  5. Once desired thickness is achieved, put the mixture in a container. Allow to cool then cover and store in the fridge for up to 1 week.
