Recipe for Cooking ~ Cherry Vanilla Jam

  • 4 cups of pitted cherries
  • ½ cup of lemon juice
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
Add the cherries, sugar and lemon juice to a medium pot.  Cook over medium heat until they begin to bubble.  Continue to cook for 20-25 minutes stirring often. Add vanilla and cook until the consistency is jelly like and will coat the back of a spoon.  Mash cherries to desired consistency. 
I have done this recipe a couple of times.  I have made chunky and a smoother preserve by using my hand blender to whip the cherries to a smoother consistency.
I made a batch for the freezer and a canned a batch, processing for 20 minutes in a water bath.
