Aunt Nana’s cherry & lavender jam

The delicate aroma of lavender wonderfully complements the taste of the fragile cherry.

A real treat for breakfast on a slice of Uncle Fafa’s “Bee & Cicada” bread.


  • 1 kg of cherries
  • 700 g jam sugar (confisuc)
  • 1 generous handful of lavender flowers


  1. Pit the cherries
  2. Leave to macerate for one day in a large bowl
  3. Add sugar
  4. Bring gently to the boil, leave to cook for 1? to 2 hours.
  5. Leave to cool a little and crush the cherries
  6. Skim
  7. Put in sterilised jars (boiled with the lids on), taking care to close them tightly and turn them upside down until the jam has set as it cools.
