2 cups granulated sugar
4 cups pitted fresh bing cherries
2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
3 Tablespoons dry pectin
1 pinch salt

(Makes about 5 cups)


Combine the cherries, salt and lemon juice to a slow cooker; stir gently.

Allow to stand for 15 minutes to dissolve the sugar.

Sprinkle with pectin.

Next cover and cook on LOW for 2 1/2 hours, stirring twice during cooking.

Turn the cooker to HIGH, remove the lid, and cook for 2-3 hours more, until the jam reaches the consistency you desire.

Spoon the warm jam into either clean screw top glass jars with new lids, or spring-top glass jars and let stand to cool.

Store, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 2 months.

Alternatively you can spoon the jam into small plastic storage containers and freeze for up to 2 months.
