Step 1: Place the water and sugar in a pot and place over high heat. Bring to the boil.

Step 2: Add the lemon zest and cinnamon stick and continue to cook until syrupy.

Step 3: Add the pitted morello cherries and cook until quite viscous, but not falling apart; there should be almost no syrup left, just enough to hold the softened cherries together.

Step 4: Remove from the heat, add the lemon juice and cool until ready to serve.

Maggie's Tip: As fresh Morello cherries are hard to obtain, choose highest quality bottle or tinned Morello cherries. Deep coloured cherries seem to be the best quality.


  1. 1 tspn lemon juice
  2. 1 lemon lemon zest
  3. 375g morello cherries pitted
  4. 1/2 cup castor sugar
  5. 500ml 2 cups water
