Morella Cherries To Preserve

When you have stalked and stoned your cherries, put to them an equal

weight of sugar: make your syrup, skim it, and take it off the fire.

Skim it again well, and put in your cherries, shaking them with care in

the pan. Boil them, not on a quick fire, lest the fruit should crack;

and take them off the fire several times. Let them boil till done; put

your cherries into pots; strain the syrup through muslin, and boil it

again till thoroughly done.
