    Jenny Sanders's Note:

    Summer in a jar! Currants add zip to the cherries and help ensure a good set. I've tried a number of different gadgets to pit cherries, and within 5 minutes I generally revert to using my fingers. A tedious job but well worth it.

      Mmmm! Just so happened I picked tons of sour cherries and red currant berries this summer. I will definitely make this again. I put them in 8 oz. jars and it made 6 of them.

      Outstanding! Can't wait to appreciate it all the more in January. Jenny, this is worth the tedium of picking every teeny currant and pitting the endless cherries. I used Splenda and it worked beautifully. My "jam" may be a bit thinner than some but it was just fine for spreading once it had cooled. I froze it in 6oz. custard cups, popped the jam out of the cups while frozen and stored it in a freezer bag to be retrieved one at a time as I want it. It's going to be marvelous on Steve G's Protein Pancakes #14344.
