Cherry Jam - Quick

Introduction

I have an abundance of cherries and I thought nothing sweeter then cherry jam on toast, or on ice cream, yogurt or oatmeal. It's so easy and so tasty!!

Ingredients

    3 cups of cherries pitted and sliced in half
    1/4 cup of sugar
    2 Tbsp of fresh lemon juice

Directions

Put a plate in the freezer till cold and then have it ready to test your jam.

In a large bowl crush your cherries and then transfer to a heavy skillet (large). Add the sugar and lemon. Turn heat to med - high and stir. After about 8 minutes test your jam, by placing a half a tsp on the cold plate. Wait a few seconds, if it is runny, then keep cooking your strawberries. Try again in another minute, you need to do this until the jam is in a jelly form. Once it is, your all done.

Place the jam in a jar, I use a mason jar, and then you can can it, by placing the sterilized jar in a tub of boiling water. Once the water starts to boil again, cook the jars for 10 minutes, then place on a towel till cool, then store in the cupboard for about a year.

You can skip the process (I am) and just place the jam in the refrigerator to use.

Now you need to make a homemade nut butter. Check out my cookbook! :)
