Cherry-and-Pineapple Conserve

Cherries combine very well with pineapple in a conserve. Sweet cherries should, if possible, be used for this purpose.


  • 2 quarts sweet cherries
  • 1 pineapple
  • 2 pounds sugar
  • 1 cup hot water


Wash, stem, and seed the cherries. Slice and peel the pineapple and remove the eyes. Put the sugar and water over the fire in a preserving kettle, and stir until the sirup comes to the boiling point. To this sirup add the pineapple and the cherries and cook until the juice is very thick. Pour into hot sterilized glasses, cool, seal, and label.
