Cherry Amaretto Jam

One of our customers at the Country Village Farmer’s Market passed this recipe on to us.  A few of the Tonnemaker crew make it at least once a year, if not more.  Our frozen sweet cherries work well for this recipe, though it calls for Sweetheart cherries. 

Cherry Amaretto Jam

1 Qt pitted & chopped Sweetheart Cherries (if using Tonnemaker frozen cherries, buy 2lbs)

1 pkg powdered pectin

1/4 C. Lemon Juice

1/4 C. Almond Liqueur

1/2 tsp. each Ground Cinnamon & Ground Cloves

4 1/2 C. Sugar

Combine all ingredients, except sugar, in a large sauce pan.  Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.  Add sugar, stirring until dissolved.  return to a rolling boil.  Boil 5 minutes, stirring constantly.  Remove from heat.  Skim foam if necessary.  Ladle hot jam into prepared jars, leaving 1/4″ headspace.  Adjust two-piece caps.  Process 10 minutes in a water bath (boiling water) canner.

Yield: about 6 half-pint jars
