Blueberry-Cherry Jam: Date Added: 13 Nov 2009 Ingredients:

1 pint fully-ripe blueberries -- and
1 1/2 pounds fully-ripe sour cherries (you need 3 1/2 cups prepared fruit, total)
4 cups sugar
1 box Sure-Jell fruit pectin

Cooking Instructions:

Thoroughly crush blueberries, one layer at a time. Stem and pit sour cherries and finely chop. Combine fruits and measure 3 1/2 cups into 6- to 8-quart saucepot.
Measure sugar and set aside. Mix fruit pectin into fruit in saucepot. Place over high heat and stir until mixture comes to a full boil. Immediately add all sugar and stir. Bring to a full rolling boil and boil 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and skim off foam with metal spoon.

Ladle quickly into hot jars, filling within 1/8-inch of tops. Wipe jar rims and threads. Cover with two-piece lids. Screw bands tightly. Invert jars for 5 minutes, then turn upright. After 1 hour, check seals.

This recipe yields 5 (1 cup) jars.
