homemade cherry jam

last week we got a big bag of cherries from viktor's parents cherry treeWe ate a lot of them, but still had some left over, so i decided to try to make cherry jam with them.
I found an easy recipe online and made it today.
lemon zest and juice

1. pit your cherries

2. cook cherries with lemon zest and juice on medium high heat for 5 minutes or until soft

3. add sugar, turn heat down to medium, and cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally
4. take jam off the heat and enjoy!

that looks so yummy!! I have a ton of raspberries that I can't seem to eat or use up baking. I think I will make a batch of jam. Thanks for the inspiration!:)

I love this. You inspired me to use up my leftover raspberries that my mother in law brought. We tried really hard to eat them but a bucket is just too much. Igor and I ended up going and buying some jars and strawberries and making 12 jars of jam. It was so fun !:) We plan on going and picking some nectarines next Sat. Before Lily's wedding and canning some of those. :) Thanks for the inspiration
