Cherry jam with red wine

10:31 am Jam recipes

This jam has just a delicious taste! I advise you to put a bit of cinnamon stick in each jar before pouring comfiture to get spicier flavor.

½ kilo fresh or tinned cherries, without cherry-stones
1 kilo sugar
1 ½ pint red wine
1 shot rum
2 packs gelatinizing agent
1/3 teaspoon cloves
½ lemon peel

1. Cover cherries with sugar, cloves and gelatinizing agent in a deep saucepan. Combine with red wine and let it brew for a night.
2. Next day: cook jam according to the guidance on the pack of gelatinizing agent.
3. Add rum, stir, pour into jars and seal.

    I made this last night/this morning and it did not turn out at all! It tastes like cherry cough syrup and didn’t thicken. I think I will have to thow it out.

    I’m not sure, but probably you’ve made some mistakes while cooking the jam. Anyways, it shouldn’t be too thick, it’s more like cherries in syrup.
