Submitted by: JO_JO_BA

Introduction

Sweet and tart cherries are livened up with a burst of pineapple groundcherries - not "real" cherries, but the name suits! Sweet and tart cherries are livened up with a burst of pineapple groundcherries - not "real" cherries, but the name suits!
Number of Servings: 50

Ingredients

    2 (14oz) cans bing cherries in light syrup, drained (save 2/3 cup syrup)
    340g pitted fresh or frozen tart cherries
    1 cup pineapple ground cherries (or regular ground cherries)
    1/4 cup red wine
    2 tsp lemon juice
    2 tsp Pomona's calcium water (see tips)
    1/4 cup sugar
    pinch salt
    2 tsp Pomona's pectin

Tips

Calcium Water:

Pomona's comes with two packets - one of pectin and one of monocalcium phosphate. The calcium helps activate the pectin under low-sugar circumstances. To prepare calcium water mix the contents of the packet with 1/2 cup water in a jar and shake well. You only need 2-3 tsp per batch so store the rest in the jar in the fridge - it keeps a long time.


Directions

Combine drained cherries, fresh or frozen cherries, ground cherries, red wine, lemon juice and calcium water in a saucepan.
Bring to a simmer, mashing fruit with a potato masher or fork to break it into your desired consistency.
Combine reserved syrup, sugar, salt and pectin in a measuring cup or bowl.
Bring fruit to a boil and add the pectin mixture.
Boil, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes.
Ladle into jars and either can in a waterbath or store in the fridge up to 1 month.

Serving Size: Makes about 6 1/4 cups, 50 (2-tbsp) servings
