    Luby Luby Luby's Note:

    This jam tastes like cherry pie and is wonderful on biscuits or toast. I didn't use the Kirsch because I didn't have any, but I will try adding it next time.** It is a pain to pit the cherries, so do yourself a favor and buy a cherry/olive pitter. I bought one made by Oxo for around $12.00 and it was worth every penny. I used my food processor to chop the cherries but be sure not to liquify the cherries - just divide them into batches of three and pulse a few times to coarsely chop. You can use any type of sweet cherry such as Bing or Rainier. **I did make a batch using the Kirsch, however, I don't care for it all. It completely overpowers the flavors so, personally, I don't recommend using the Kirsch.
