Description

Chokecherries grow wild in North American and taste very similar to black cherries. The syrup is my favorite on pancakes, waffles and even vanilla ice cream.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups Chokecherry Juice
  • 6 cups Sugar
  • ½ teaspoons Almond Extract

Preparation

After picking your chokecherries, you’ll need to extract the juice. I use a steam juicer or you can use a jelly bag.

To make the syrup, start with 3 cups chokecherry juice in a medium sauce pan. (Don’t make the pan too small because it does boil up.) Whisk in 6 cups of sugar and stir over medium heat. When syrup comes to a full boil, boil for 1 full minute. Remove from heat and add 1/2 teaspoon pure almond extract.

Pour into 7 sterilized 1/2 pint jelly jars. Process in a canner for 10 minutes. (15 minutes for me, since I’m at altitude.)

This recipe does not serve 7. It makes 7 half-pint jelly jars. That serves a lot!

I do juice my own. I live in the mountain west and chokecherries grow wild around my home. We pick them growing wild by my kid’s elementary school. I use a steam juicer to extract the juice.

Can you buy Chokecherry Juice? Or are you juicing your own?

I love to can and this sounds wonderful, but have NO clue where to get the juice.

Oh, I meant chokecherry syrup….and as long as I’m correcting that……it was a treat when Mom made waffles and opened a bottle of chokecherry syrup. I am indebted to you!
