Recipe by Dianne Jones
I like this recipe because I have sour cherry trees. It makes wonderful jam.

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.
- 4 cups prepared seeded cherry pulp
- 4 3⁄4 cups sugar
- 1 box Sure-Jell
- 1⁄2 teaspoon butter
- 1⁄4 teaspoon almond extract
