Cherry and Cinnamon Conserve


I just love this Cherry and Cinnamon Conserve recipe and I use the jelly for so many things too. With less than a handful of ingredients producing almost a kilo of conserve, the options are endless. I love it just as it is, on some buttered toast, a scone with fresh cream or even inside a croissant with cheese.

In the summer I serve it as a dessert on top of vanilla ice cream and sometimes as a filling inside a jam tart. Promise you’ll love this one!

So, how to make Cherry and Cinnamon Conserve?

Steps to make Cherry and Cinnamon Conserve


Freeze saucers


Place a few saucers into the freezer. (You will use these to test whether your conserve is set).


Boil conserve syrup


Roughly chop ⅓ cherries and place in a large pan with the cinnamon stick, lemon zest, lemon juice and 150ml water. Bring to a gentle boil then reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes until cherries are softened. Stir the mixture occasionally.


Add sugar


Add sugar and stir well until dissolved.




Increase the heat and boil for 4-5 minutes, until the conserve is set but still soft.

To test if your conserve has set, use a saucer from the freezer and spoon a little conserve onto it. Push your finger through the jelly, if it wrinkles then your conserve is set, if not, then boil again for a few more minutes.




Spoon the conserve into small, clean, warm jars and seal well. Once open, keep refrigerated.
