Fresh Cherry Pie Filling

cherries2
These are a couple of recipes to make my homemade filling from all the cherries from our tree. Both are excellent!

Recipe 1
5-6 cups fresh pitted cherries (2-3 lbs)
1/2 cup water
1-1/4 cups sugar
4 Tbs cornstarch

In a saucepan, combine all ingredients, bring to a boil; reduce heat to low and cook, stirring frequently, for about 10 minutes.

Cool slightly before using.


Recipe 2
2 cups fresh pitted cherries
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
2 TBS cornstarch

In a saucepan, cook cherries in water for 10 minutes. Mix together sugar and cornstarch, add to cherries. Cook mixture until thickened.

Cool slightly before using.
