      This was terrific! I made it to use up some frozen Door County (sour) cherries when I defrosted my freezer. I was going to give away the jam to my friends, but it's so good I don't know if I will be able to part with it! The almond extract adds just the right hint. I used the pink box of "less sugar" type of sure jell.

      My DH just loves this Jam! I have to make it for him so that he can take PB&J's to work with him. I made several batches last year with cherries we got from a co-op. I got very tired of making him jam so he froze some of the cherries. When he ran out of jam I would just tell him to bring a bag of frozen cherries in to thaw out. He was never without!! Now I am trying to use up the rest of the cherries in the freezer so that in about a week he can get another 25 lbs of cherries!! But this is the exact same recipe his mother uses to make her jam, right down to the almond extract. He loves it with the almond extract. I didn't put it in one time and he could tell the difference. This is a wonderful recipe to make Sour(tart) Cherry Jam!!!
