1/1 Photo of Strawberry and Rainier Cherry Jam
I had a lot of Rainier cherries that needed to be used right away and some strawberries in the freezer that I thought would help them make a great jam - and it did! This jam is now one of my kids favorites! I used really sweet Strawberries, so if your strawberries aren't as sweet you might want to add more sugar. Prep time doesn't include direction 1 (time to thaw strawberries and pit cherries - I usually do that the night before).
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Thaw out frozen strawberries. Clean and pit cherries.
- 2Blend strawberries and cherries in a food processor.
- 3Pour mixture and lemon juice in 6-8 qt saucepan. Whisk in fruit pectin and sugar. Bring to a rolling boil over med-high heat, stirring constantly for about 20 or more minutes until jam is at desired thickness (though remember it will thicken up more once the jam cools).
- 4Ladle into prepared 1/2 pint jars, leaving 1/4" headspace.
- 5Lid jars and place into boiling canner. Boil jars for 10 minutes.
- 6Remove jars from boiler and let them cool for 24 hours for a good seal.
