A simple way to preserve a bounty of fresh cherries. Great for pies, tarts, or atop ice cream, yogurt or pancakes!
Begin by sterilizing your clean pint size jars and lids in a boiling water canner for 5-10 minutes.
To make the cherries:
Add the sugar and water in a large pot. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium, and stir until sugar dissolves. Add cherries and let simmer for 5 minutes. Skim any foam that accumulates on the surface.
To can the cherries:
One at a time, take the sterilized jars out of the boiling water canner. Pack with hot cherries and fill jar leaving ½ inch headspace with simple syrup. Wipe rims of jars with a paper towel. Adjust sterilized lids, making sure not to screw them on too tightly! Lower back into the boiling water canner and process for fifteen minutes. Let cool completely on a wire rack, the cans should seal during this time.
Label with the date and contents. Store for up to 1 year.
A sweet, spicy, nutty pumpkin butter that will warm your blood on chilly autumn days.
Sparkling jars of brilliant red are lovely to behold, but it’s the taste—sweet and tangy while packing a bit of heat—that make this jam simply outstanding. This jam is best made using a combination of mild and hot peppers. I used Anaheim, poblano and jalapeño peppers, but you can use bell peppers or whatever is available locally.
