The berries should be picked when they begin to show signs of ripening. Stem carefully, drop them into cold water and let come to a boil. Remove from fire and pour off the water and when the berries have cooled drop them into boiling syrup (made by using just enough water to sugar to form a liquid), heating very slowly. Seal. The berries will stay quite whole and if the operation has been carefully done, will keep for years.
