Canned some Cherry Jam tonight. Here's proof:
Low Sugar on the left...regular on the right. The Low Sugar stuff uses mostly apple juice concentrate as a sweetener, and just a little sugar to take the edge off the sour. The "regular" stuff...well...all bets are off....no diabetics please. I added little nip of Grand Marnier to both recipes, just to sweeten the deal.
This little gem is a value at twice the price. Ladies and gentlemen....I give you....the Cherry Pitter. Money In The Bank.
This evenings take from the garden. I know that this has nothing at all to do with canning cherries but...in the interest of science and what not. I wanted to post what we are still hauling in. I've been looking back on last years blogs to see how the harvesting season matches up. My guess is that we are about 2 weeks behind last year....which makes for a nice, long harvest...now, back to the cherries.
