“This recipe was given to my mother at a bridal shower in 1947. It has since become a family treasure. I once got a call from my Daughter in Scotland asking for this recipe. It was originally done with sour cherries, but sour cherries are a rare commodity here in New England so I've had to push the envelope a bit. I've done it with blueberries, peaches, blueberries and peaches, blackberries, strawberries, and raspberries and it's been wonderful with all of them, though with just peaches it needs a bit of lemon juice to compensate for the extra sweetness. Try this you won't be disappointed.”
