Cherry and Raspberry Preserves

2 pounds Bing cherries
8 cups raspberries
3 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

Stem and pit the cherries; you should have 4 cups. In a large bowl,
stir together the cherries, raspberries and sugar. Let stand at
room temperature, stirring occasionally, for 2 hours.

Pour the fruit into a wide, shallow, nonreactive saucepan and stir
in the lemon juice. Cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally,
for 30 to 40 minutes until the mixture looks thickened and glazed.
Remove a table-spoon of the preserves to a small saucer and chill
in the freezer for 5 minutes.

Run your finger through the mixture; if it wrinkles, it is ready
to jar. If it is not ready, continue cooking for 5 more minutes
and repeat the test.

Sterilize four 8-ounce canning jars by washing and rinsing them in
the dishwasher without detergent; keep them warm in a 250 degrees
F oven. Pour boiling water over the jar lids to soften the rubber
seals. Ladle the hot preserves to within 1/2 inch of the rims of
the jars. Wipe the rims and seal with the hot lids and metal bands.
Let cool to room temperature, then refrigerate for several weeks.
Or, to store longer, process in a water bath.

Makes four 8-ounce jars.
