Why? Because you can! And pickle, and jam, or otherwise celebrate the resurgence of the domestic arts our forebears held so dear. Put on your best apron and step into our kitchen, won't you?
You can dry tart cherries yourself! It's easy and delicious.
This tart cherry sauce is great as a glaze or yogurt mix-in, and is much lower in sugar than commercial yogurt with fruit. It's easy to make tart cherry sauce in your slow cooker, and this method can be used with other fruits and combinations.
Tart cherries are by far, my favorite summer fruit, and this simple jam is a perfect way to showcase them.
