    My nephew  arrived  yesterday with fresh sweet cherry’s ,we ate and ate.....

    But we did not dent the pile of cherry’s.

    It is time for the big guns  “  JAM”

    IT is an easy jam to do just takes time

    5 lb cherry’s (pitted)

    5 lb sugar

    Juice of 2 lemons

    ½ cup water

    A big heavy  pot

    3 Sterilized   jars  ( I do mine in the oven this way they are hot when I pour the jam in to them )

    Put in the pot the lemon juice ,the water , and the cherry’s

    Bring to boil and mix well

    Now add the sugar and mix and  bring to boil

    Drop the heat and cook and stir and stir and stir  till it gets  thick and it forms a film on the spoon

    When you run your finger on it it leaves a mark  (remember it is hot)

    During this process  a foam will be created on top you must remove it

    Now is the time to fill the jars put them back in the oven for 5 minutes

     and now let them cool .

    It goes with ice cream, pancakes, and more.......

    Bon appétit

    I put tin foil on the stove because it is a B*&^&@ to clean it if you spill.

    Looks great Ahron! It's great to see what is normally a spring activity being done when were bracing for winter. Makes me somewhat jealous. Guess thats whats happens when you live on the other side of the world. Merry Christmas!!!
