I surely must have got a rogue tin. Hardly any fruit, mostly a thick purple sweet gunge with a vague cherry flavour. Better to buy a tin of fruit or better still use fresh fruit.
Received this as a substitue for cherrys in kirsch. Decided to use it in a crumble but is was horrible. All of the cherries disappeared into a puree when baking with the crumble topping, It did not even taste of cherries.
I used this for a black Forrest gateau and it’s was really good. I will definitely use this again.
tastes of nothing but purple SUGAR
I've used this for years and always been happy with it, but this is the first tin I've bought this year and the recipe has been sweetened up yet again; The sweet tartness of the cherries is now nothing but SUGAR. All taste is gone, completely blanketed by sugar, which is the third largest ingredient after water and cherries (just 40% actual cherries now). This was my go-to product for a fast and fancy pie or crumble; now it's just a can of tasteless gelatinous blah.
too sweetb and soggy
too sweet and soggy
Lovely cherry pie filling
Get two tins for a big pie.
Try Something Entirely Different
Never mind making a pie or a crumble, with just two tins, sugar, 1 gal. of water and yeast you have a very palatable wine. Adding pectolase will give you 6 bottles of crystal clear wine that is drinkable in 2 months. Look for a full recipe on line.
Delicious in crumbles
Utterly delicious, not too sweet and enough cherry flavour.
Great stuff :-)
I made a cherry crumble a few days ago for my carers, they were so happy. I used the ready made crumble mix, added extra sugar & a good amount of cinnamon. It tasted so good, I always use this product, even for cherry bakewell tarts.
Love the taste of cherries
I love this. Pop the fruit into an oven dish, make a fatless sponge with 1 whipped egg (for 5 mins), beat in 1oz. caster sugar, fold in 1oz. SR flour. Pour over the fruit and bake of 20 mins on 170. Delish pudding for 2.
