‘Tis the season to indulge in surinam cherries!

Ingredients:
2 cups surinam cherries (deseeded)
1/2-3/4 cups sugar
2 tbsp lemon juice

Directions:
Hold each cherry over a measuring cup and squeeze the seed(s) out of the fruit. Do this until you have the desired amount of cherries.
In a pan, place the cherries, sugar and lemon juice. Bring to a high simmer and stir. Lower the heat and allow to simmer on low heat stirring intermittently. Do this until you get a jam like consistency (this took me about 30 minutes).
If you are canning, place hot in sterilized jar and cover properly. Otherwise, enjoy with bread, cheese, etc.
