Saturday the neighbor gave us 2 gallon of pie cherries. I made a batch of Cherry Jam with some!
4 cups chopped pie cherries
5 cups sugar
1 box Ball fruit pectin
Put cherries and fruit pectin in large pot and bring to boil that cannot be stirred down. Add sugar all at once and bring back to boil. Boil for 1 minute and put in hot jars. Seal with hot lids and rings and process in hot water bath for 5 minutes. Cool completely
The rest of the cherries were put in a plastic container in the fridge and I was going to make a cherry pie for Memorial Day Barbecue. Baby O came home from her girlfriends house and found them while I was out mowing. Needless to say the cherries for the pie are gone. Hhhhmmmmmmmm. Maybe a Strawberry Shortcake!
Hope everyone has a safe Memorial Day!
