Sweet and a little tart, this easy sour cherry jam tastes like pie filling in the best way. Slather it on toast or swirl it into yogurt.
- 2 pounds fresh sour cherries, pitted
1 cup granulated sugar
Juice of 1 lemon
- Combine the cherries, sugar and lemon juice in a large saucepan over medium heat. Slowly bring the mixture to a boil, stirring frequently. Simmer for 20-25 minutes, continuing to stir, until the jam has thickened.
- The jam will keep thickening as it cools. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 2 weeks.
