Tart cherries

I keep coming back to my memory of the dried tart cherries I picked up at Wegman’s for Hamantaschen filling. I nibbled a few on my way to the parking lot. They are more tart than raisins or sultanas, more like dried cranberries but less bitter. Love them!

Last summer I bought fresh tart cherries at the Silver Spring Farmers Market and made Cherry Slab Pie. I loved the process of taking those tart cherries and turning them into pie filling, a dish to love.

This summer I went cherry picking with my friend Karen. The trees were laden with cherries, so many that
Cherry Jam Jarall we did was stand under the arched branches and pluck bright red round cherries off the branches. We filled several buckets and lugged them back to the barn to weigh in and purchase.

Unlike berries that only need mashing, I punched out the pit with a plastic drink stirrer. Then pulsed the cherries in a food processor a few times to break them into a coarse chop and they were ready for jammin’. Spooning bright red chunky jam over ice cream is a holiday dessert anytime you’re in the mood. Lots of cheer here.

Recipe: Cherry Jam

Active Time: 40 Minutes | Total Time: 40 Minutes | Yield: 3 Pints

Ingredients
4 cups chopped tart cherries, about 2 1/4-2 1/2 lbs
Cherries4 1/2 Tbsp dry fruit pectin
1/4 tsp butter
5 cups sugar

Special Equipment – cherry pitter or plastic stirring straw, large pot, food processor, wide mouth funnel, 3 pint jars with lids and rings

Instructions
1 Wash jars, lids and rings in hot soapy water or dish washer, dry and set aside with funnel. Measure sugar into a bowl and set aside. Place 3 flat lids into a small pan and cover with water. Set on a back burner of the stove without heat.

2 Prepare fruit by pitting then placing cherries in a food processor and process to desired consistency or chopped with sharp knife.

3 Measure exactly 4 cups chopped cherries into a large pot. Add pectin and butter. Bring mixture to a full rolling boil that cannot be stirred down, around 5-8 minutes.

4 Add sugar all at once and stir constantly. Return mixture to a full rolling boil. Boil for 4 minutes. Remove from the heat.

5 Meanwhile turn the pan with lids on high heat and bring to boil.

6 Taking care to prevent touching the hot fruit mixture, place the funnel in one jar and scoop or pour the hot fruit into the jar filling to 1/2 inch from the rim. Wipe rim clean of any drips and place a hot lid on the top and screw ring tightly. Repeat with the other two jars. Allow to cool without touching the flat lid. The heat will seal the jar by suction and the lid will make a popping sound. Store in a cool dry place. Refrigerate once opened.

Information
Notes
To pit cherries, use a cherry pitter or poke the pit out with a plastic stirring straw.

When mashing fruit, the more the chunks are broken down the smoother the jam will be.

To bring fruit to a full rolling boil that cannot be stirred down, turn the heat on high and stir fruit mixture constantly. When it starts to boil continue to cook until the bubbles pop and boil even while stirring.

If there is any extra jam place it in a small bowl or container and store in the fridge after it cools.

Pectin

The temperatures were uncharacteristically cool July 4th for my berry picking outing in Poolesville, Maryland at Homestead Farm. I picked buckets of berries from low hanging branches and vines.

But the real story is my discovery of new packaging for powdered pectin. Traditionally it’s sold in powered pudding type boxes for a one size only recipe. The dilemma is what happens to the odd sized amount of fruit puree left over at the end, or the small batch from dead ripe berries, or fruit left from the Farmers Market that’s perfect for jam.

PectinBall has finally packaged pectin in containers with screw lids for flex batches. Genius!!! Now you can make the size batch you want without all the guess work for different batch variations. What’s more, their website has a Pectin Calculator with ‘point and click’ recipes for all kinds of fruit and berries. You pick the fruit, click on ‘jam or jelly’, and continue with the simple user-friendly step by step recipe builder. You’ll end up with a graphed group of quantities for every size batch. It’s about time.

Now you and I can make enough jam for breakfast this week, or line the shelves of our pantry. Jam has never been this easy. Knock out a few flavors. Check out the suggestions for using jam in cooking, baking and serving. Jam is more than a nice-to-have item stowed away for the winter.
