This is a delicious combination of juicy sweet cherries and tart raspberries. You’ll want to make more than one batch!
Sterilize jars: These can be sterilized in the oven at 225ºF for 10 minutes, and should be kept warm until filling time. Lids should be placed in boiled water until ready to use. I just have my sealers in a pot simmering (not boiling) while I cook my jam.
1. Mix cherries, raspberries, lemon juice, and sugar in large saucepan.
2. Bring to full rolling boil on high heat, stirring constantly.
3. Add the butter or margarine (this helps reduce foaming).
4. Boil 1 minute, stirring constantly.
5. Remove from heat and stir in liquid pectin.
6. Stir and skim off any foam for 5 minutes.
7. Pour immediately into warm sterilized jars, filling to within 1/4 of an inch of rims.
8. Place hot sealer on top and screw on the lid rings.
9. Let stand for 24 hours to set.
Makes seven 1-cup jars.
If you are lucky enough to live where the cherries are aplenty I advise you to print out this Sweet Cherry Vanilla Jam recipe and tape it somewhere that you will not forget about it when the cherries come into season! Or you can use frozen cherries like I did.
This recipe was made using the new Ball Jam & Jelly Maker but you can make it the traditional way also.
