This is a great way to use up fresh cherries that may be sitting in your fridge. Cherry Jam will make people swoon and is also a great gift!
When I see Bing cherries on sale, I ALWAYS buy them. I love cherries. I can make my way through a bag of cherries in no time. Gently bite..detect pit with teeth..work pit outside of teeth..spit pit out..enjoy delicious cherry flesh..repeat. We recently found ourselves with tons of delicious cherries, so I made jam. It was incredible. I must now quote my 8-year-old upon eating said jam. "This jam is FANTASTIC!" This was followed by, "This stuff makes me DANCE!" Need I say more?!
ALL you will need are a few simple ingredients! In a medium saucepan, throw together cherries, sugar and lemon juice!
Cook for 10-12 minutes, or until the mixture sticks to the back of a spoon.
Have a fantastic weekend that makes you dance!
