Recipe for Raspberry Cherry Preserves

Can Fresh Raspberries and
Fresh Cherries Together

If you are searching for a Raspberry and Cherry Preserves Recipe, here is how to can fresh raspberries and cherries together.

Now is the time to preserve the taste of summer's goodness to enjoy later!

The yummy flavour of fresh Bing cherries and red or black raspberries (or both) complement each other perfectly to make a great mixed fruit preserve!


Note - If you are fortunate enough to have both red and black raspberries, you can easily substitute the 8 cups of raspberries with 4 cups of red, and 4 cups of black raspberries.

8 cups fresh raspberries, red or black

4 cups cherries, "bing", pitted

3 1/2 cups granulated sugar

2 tbsps. fresh lemon juice


In a large bowl, stir together the cherries, raspberries, and the sugar.

Allow the above mixture to stand at room temperature for about 2 hours.

Sterilize 4 - 8 ounce size canning jars, and keep them warm in the oven set to 250° F.

Boil the lids in a small pan to soften the seals, and keep in hot water until ready to use.

Transfer the fruit to a non-reactive saucepan, and stir in the lemon juice.

Cook the mixture over medium heat, stirring occasionally for about 30 - 40 minutes, or until the mixture looks thickened and glazed.

Remove a table-spoon of the preserves to a small saucer and chill in the freezer for 5 minutes.

Put your finger through the preserves. If the mixture wrinkles, it is ready to put into jars. If it is not ready, continue to cook for 5 more minutes and repeat the test.

Ladle the hot preserves to within 1/2 inch of the top of the jars.

Seal with hot lids (discs) and metal bands.

Let cool to room temperature, then refrigerate for several weeks. To store longer , process in a boiling water bath.

Enjoy your Raspberry Cherry Preserves anytime of the year!
