My sister-in-law brought me some cherries this weekend , she and her boyfriend picked them from her boyfriend's grandmother's tree. Yesterday I attempted to make cherry jam , but I got ahead of myself and added the sugar to the cherries first. You're suppose to add the sur-gel first , boil 1 minute , then add sugar and boil again for 1 minute. Since I added the sugar first , it didn't gel , so now we have cherry ice cream or pancake topping (LOL). But I'm not about to let it go to waste after all that work , it takes time to pit cherries , chop them and go through the canning process plus wash up everything you use to process it. We may get some more cherries this week , next time I'll think before I leap (LOL).
