Tips & Home Canning Recipes For Cherry Fruit
Is there anything better than home canned cherries??
They make the most delicious cherry desserts, and when canning fruits, or making other cherry recipes, cherry fruit is so easy to prepare.
The key is in choosing fruit that is perfectly ripe, blemish and spot free, with the skin intact.
In our home canning recipes, we don't bother to remove the cherry pit from the fruit, although this is something you can do if you wish. Leaving the stone in keeps the fruit intact, and doesn't affect the taste or quality of canned fruit after it has been processed.
Canned cherries will have a shelf life of 12 - 18 months, and if your house is anything like ours, they'll be long gone before that time is up!
Like our other recipes for canning fruit, the cherry recipes here use the same amounts of sugar to water for a light, medium, or heavy syrup.
Most cherry varieties are excellent for canning, and types of cherries you'll find in the Okanagan such as Bing cherries, Van cherries, Skeena, Sweetheart cherries, Santina, Lapin and Lamberts are all some of our favorites.
Lapin cherry variety is one the most common commercially grown cherry variety, and keep very well for other cherry recipes and cherry desserts. Bing's are also commonly found in supermarkets, and are great for homemade canned cherry pie filling. Van cherries are also excellent in all cherry recipes.
We use the raw pack method for canned cherries and our other recipes for canned fruits as well.
