I have been making this jam for many, many years and boy, is it good on a toasted sourdough turkey sandwiches with a bit of cream cheese (or 3 sandwiches if you are Griffen or Berlyn). I can’t say “YUUUMMM!” enough. When I open a jar, I know that it will be gone faster than I can say “cherries!”
We also make this same recipe with Strawberries as well. And man, that black pepper just adds a bit of kick perfect for a sweet and savory dish.
I never make quite enough of this jam either to last until cherries are ripe the next year.
- 4 cups of pitted and stemmed cherries ( I buy mine in bulk from my local fruit lady in the fall. HI JESS! and they come in 5-gallon buckets, pre-pitted!)
- 3 TBSP lemon juice
- 4-1/2 TBSP Pectin
- 2TBSP Fresh Cracked Black Pepper
Bring to a boil and then add
- 6 cups sugar
Stir, Stir, Stir!!! And bring back to a rolling boil for 1 minute.
Now, you can can add to your jars and can these bad boys for later use. Please follow all canning requirements to ensure safety.Thank you for visiting KrisandLarry.com - We are a homschooling, homesteading family from Arizona.
