Why I Love This Recipe


Ingredients You'll Need

4 1/2 cups pitted and chopped sour cherries
7 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon red food coloring (optional: I never use it)
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1 6-ounce bottle pectin


Directions

Measure the prepared cherries into a large, heavy kettle. Add the


sugar and stir well. Place over high heat and, stirring constantly,


bring quickly to a full boil, with bubbles over the entire surface.


Add the remaining ingredients except the pectin. Boil hard for 1


minute, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat and add the


pectin. Skim off any foam. Ladle into 8 hot half-pint jars.


Seal, then process for 4 minutes in a hot water bath, counting


the time from when the water comes again to a rolling boil after


immersing the jars.
