Morello cherry jam
I usually say that it is one of the most difficult jams to make because this fruit is so poor in pectin. It is for this reason that I put a little agar agar (natural gelling agent based on seaweed). This avoids over-cooking and we therefore end up with an extra jam full of color, fruit, fresh cherry aromas, this famous sour cherry whose inimitable little stone taste has made it famous.
In the south-west of France, tradition has it that it is served with sheep's cheese, but its strengths do not stop there! The cherry goes wonderfully with the duck breast. The small shortbread cookies with cherry jam remain for me, after the chore of collecting, a touching childhood memory ...
