Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
345g caster sugar
2 star anise
4 strips orange zest
500ml water
1kg cherries, stems removed

Method

  1. Combine the sugar, star anise, orange zest and water in a large saucepan and place over low heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil then add the whole cherries. Allow the mixture to return to the boil then remove from the heat.
  2. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the hot cherries to warm sterilised jars. Pour over the syrup, to cover the cherries. Seal immediately.
  3. Stand the jars on a wire rack or trivet in the base of a deep pot. Fill the pot with boiling water to cover the jars by at least 3 cm. Cover with a tight-fitting lid and simmer for 20 minutes. Remove the jars from the water and leave to cool on a wooden board. Store in a cool, dark place for up to 12 months. Refrigerate after opening.

Cook’s note

  • The cherries can be stoned using a cherry or olive stoner if preferred.
