Smoky Roasted Cherry Jam

5 Reviews
From: EatingWell Magazine May/June 2010

This is not a sweet jam to eat on your peanut butter sandwich, rather a smoky, roasted cherry jam that goes well with savory foods like cheese, grilled pork tenderloin or roasted chicken. Try it on a grilled cheese sandwich with extra-sharp Cheddar or fontina cheese.

This was incredible. I made several batches and canned it to give away as gifts. That's how good it is. I also added a tiny spash of red wine which gave it a nice flavor.

My partner and I made this because we are cutting out sugars and this is great! I really love the flavor and it is great with Peanut Butter.
