Chokecherry Jam Recipe

 

  1. Remember to stir, stir, stir. Cherries and sugar can get pretty sticky and may burn to the sides of your pot.

  2. Add 1 cup of water to every four cups of cherries.

  3. Simmer over low heat until fruit is very tender.

  4. Use a large spoon to press the chokecherry pulp through a sieve. (Three cups of pulp make about 3 half pints of jam.)

  5. Add an equal amount of sugar to match the amount of chokecherry pulp.

  6. Put sugar/chokecherry mixture back on the stove and cook over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved.

  7. Cook to a temperature of 9 °F higher than the boiling point of water. *According to Aunt Lillian, this temperature check will deliver a rich flavor and thick consistency.

  8. Pour into hot, sterile jam jars to approximately 3/4 full.

  9. Seal and process in a boiling water bath for about 15 minutes.

  10. Give the jam 24 hours to slowly cool.
