I pulled my cherries out of the freezer the other night, and got out my new cherry pitter. I pitted the fruit until I had a full quart of pitted cherries and then I tossed in a small handful of raspberries I had picked that same night. I was going to include a number of blackberries, but my wife ate them while I pitted the cherries.
I ended up water-bath processing 7 four-ounce jars, 1 half-pint jar (shown in the photo), and two jars that went straight to the refrigerator. It’s delicious jam!
