Blackberry and Bing Cherry Preserves

It was so hard for me to decide if I preferred blackberry or cherry preserves so I combined the two and came up with an absolutely delicious combination. This is scrumptious served over vanilla ice cream and topped with crumbled baked pie crust.

    Perfect! This basic recipe is my go to for all berry recipes! I love that it is based on weight of the berries (takes the guesswork out), I easily halve it, and mix whatever I have, blackberries, cherries, blueberries, strawberries, etc in whatever ratio sounds good to me! Every year, for the past 4 years, my jams have been a hit with everyone. Thank you! This is the one recipe I have been looking for - LOVE IT!
