Drain the cherries and retain the juice. Pour juice into a measuring cup and add water to make 2 cups liquid.

Mix in cherry jello and heat in microwave as you would a cup of coffee or tea. Stir mix until jello is dissolved. This may take reheating.

Stir the cherries into the liquid and pour into a mold. Refrigerate.

This is a very thick jello, using half the recommended water. If it's too thick for your taste, add some cold water after the jello is dissolved.
