There are lots and lots of cherries (morello) this year. We picked some for the freezer, others for the cherry sauce for Christmas - and then a lot just to consume 😋🍒🍒, and there are still plenty on the tree.
For the two jars - each ½ liter - I used:
500 g cherries, pitted
4 Dl sugar
2 Dl water
½ tsp citric acid
Atamon is a special Danish liquid preservative - consisting of water, preservative (E211), antioxidant (E270), color (E150) and flavoring.
Bring sugar and water to a boil. Add the berries and the citric acid and let simmer 2-3 minutes. Remove from stove and add Atamon. Put in cleaned jars.
