  • About

Sour cherry preserves are frequently used in Italian desserts, especially those from Rome southward. Though you may substitute good-quality commercial preserves (British and German brands sometimes use the term “Morello cherries”), this recipe produces a quick, easy batch of the preserves that keeps well in the refrigerator. Use the preserves as they are, or use only the cherries for desserts like Zeppole di San Giuseppe and
