Black-Cherries Preserved.

Take them fresh, or as they come from the Tree, and cut off the stalk; take one pound of Sugar for double the weight of Cherries, seeth and clarifie them, and when they are half boil'd put in your other Cherries, and let them seeth softly together, until the Sugar may be drawn between the fingers like small threads; when the broth is almost cold, put the Cherries in the pots with the stalks upward.
