Sour Cherry Raspberry Jam Canned

Sour Cherry Raspberry Jam

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!

  1. I enjoy visiting your blog! Canning is something I hope to try this year and appreciate reading your recent post. I am learning there are so many fruits and veggies you can do this with! I have been finding a lot of great recipes lately, can’t wait to try with my cucumbers in late July. I also really like your design for your trellises, nice and sturdy! What an inspiring idea to try! Looking forward to following your blog!

    Happy Gardening, Sheryl


    • Thank you Sheryl! If you page through my archives in the canning tag, you’ll find at least one thorough tutorial (tomatoes) and a few more pages where I go into a bit of detail about the process. I’ll do another post like those this year.


  2. I really love your blog. Thanks!
