    1. 1
      Combine the cherries and sugar in a large, heavy, shallow, non-reactive saucepan.
    2. 2
      Set aside to plump, several hours or as long as overnight.
    3. 3
      Add the water to the cherries and bring to a boil.
    4. 4
      Cook for 5 minutes; then add the lemon juice and boil rather fast until the juice has thickened like jelly and a candy thermometer reads 221*F.
    5. 5
      Remove pan from heat and allow the preserves to sit overnight, covered; refrigerate them, if you'd rather.
    6. 6
      The next day, reheat the preserves to the boiling point and spoon them into hot, sterilized canning jars and seal.
    7. 7
      Store in the refrigerator, or (better) in the freezer.

      This is a really good recipe. Just what I was looking for! I hot-packed a batch to see how well it lasts without refrigeration. We'll see.

      Delicious! Now, the name was a little misleading to me because I was under the impression that "Preserves" meant like jam or jelly. This (or at least mine) was more like a dessert topping. Did I do something wrong? Anyway...The taste was out of this world...way beyond my expectations...So far I have eaten it spooned over Rocky Road Ice cream and it was AWESOME...My BF loved it in his vanilla milk shake...I'm guessing this concoction would taste good warmed over pancakes...
