What kind of cherries? If sour, you can can them whole in syrup. Or, follow the Ferber recipe for raspberries and chocolate and use cherries instead (it's insanely good)

These were bings.   Black sweet cherries.   The results remind me of commercial "mixed berry" or "red fruit" preserves.    Not "bad" but not the product I anticipated.    

 

Certainly usable as waffle or pancake topping.   Or bagels or crumpet.

 

We're not, or at least I'm not a sweet eater.    I don't see these in my future.

I say this over and over:sweet cherries do not,have much flavor beyond sweetness. There may be a mythical,available to select few sample out there,but for pies and preserves, go for the sours,which are around now,for their short,expensive two week window.

They're from an old tree so not super flavourful, definitely need help. Was thinking Kirch or vanilla. Then again a tart with almond is an option. 

Disagree about sweet cherries though -- the ones from Lake Constanz are great.

Or a few kernels from the pits

The sweet cherries I used in a sauce for pork tonight were supernal.

I miss the days when I could buy some of Chef Pim's marmalades.  They were always so different and tasty.  Of course I don't eat marmalade anymore so that will have to remain a memory.
