Step 1: Place the water and sugar in a pot and place over high heat. Bring to the boil.
Step 2: Add the lemon zest and cinnamon stick and continue to cook until syrupy.
Step 3: Add the pitted morello cherries and cook until quite viscous, but not falling apart; there should be almost no syrup left, just enough to hold the softened cherries together.
Step 4: Remove from the heat, add the lemon juice and cool until ready to serve.
Maggie's Tip: As fresh Morello cherries are hard to obtain, choose highest quality bottle or tinned Morello cherries. Deep coloured cherries seem to be the best quality.
1 tspn lemon juice
1 lemon lemon zest
375g morello cherries pitted
