I used cherries and I really liked this! It was sooo yummy. Little Y liked it too :)
The only thing is that I overcooked it a little too much, so it was very thick and a bit tough to spread. It didn't effect the taste at all though. Also, I added a tiny bit of water, because the cherries weren't super juicy. Other fruits like berries might not need the extra water, especially if they're from frozen.

1 pound BERRIES, CURRANTS, or CHERRIES
1/2 pound SUGAR
1. Wash and pit fruit, if needed. Mix sugar and fruit in a medium saucepan. Add a small amount of water if needed, but remember the fruit will emit some juices.
2. Boil fruit until it has reduced to 1/4 the original amount and is thick enough to spread on bread.
