      Wonderful flavor, but it didn't set up with only one minute of cooking time. Cooked for nearly 30 minutes to achieve a jelled consistency after it cooled. Will make again, but with extended cooking time.

      what an awesome recipe! i love it. i made this just tonight and one jar is already missing a good amount. i could not resist breaking out the brie and letting it swim in the jam. i did reduce the sugar by about a cup, my cherries were semi sweet to start with and they are fabulous now. i just wish the recipe made more, i need to go and buy more cherries. thanks for posting such a fabulous and simple recipe. i WILL make this again and again.

      This recipe makes the most wonderful, fresh tasting preseves! I searched the internet for a recipe that called for a high cherry to sugar ratio and this was the winner. It is the only recipe that I found that did not sound so cloyingly sweet. The taste is marvelous and it was so easy to make. I also found that if you don't hard boil it the entire minute after the 3 cups of sugar is added, it makes a delicious cherry sauce that is to die for. Perfect over vanilla ice cream. The preseves/sauce is so good it's hard not to eat it straight from the jar. Thanks Melody for sharing!

      This was an easy recipie to follow, apart from pitting the cherries ;). I will be looking forward to enjoying them over a scoope of vanilla ice cream. Next time I'm going to try adding a tsp. Or two of ammerto or almond extract.

      Great Recipe! I've made it twice now...the second time included 3 recipes! Since cherries are so plentiful (and cheap) this season, I couldn't resist making more! I did reduce the sugar by about a cup, and increased the cooking time to 4-5 minutes. Will make great Christmas gifts!

      I followed the recipe exactly and got wonderful, sweet-tart jam, very different from cloyingly sweet cherry jams I've had in the past. This is easy, delicious, and unusual--I'll make it every year!

      Excellent! I love that there is not too much sugar in this--tastes tart but sweet like cherry pie. Make sure you bring to a rolling boil before you time the minutes. Made 6 half-pint jars. Thanks so much for the recipe!
