Makin' Jam.

Oh yeah...

Fresh wild bird cherries in three colors (I guarantee you have these dwarf plum trees in your neighborhood) given to me by a dear friend, cooked down, strained, sugar added, cooked to soft ball stage, and canned properly. So much jam, so delicious. Everyone I know got a jar and we still have 2 left. Life is good.


  1. That looks sooo delicious and fun! I was just wondering about how long the jam keeps?? Although I'm sure it's so delicious that it isn't a problem!
    Also, I've been following your blog for a while, and I added a link to it on my own blog in my "good internet reads" section. I hope you don't mind! If so, please just let me know and I'll take it right down!

  2. Our neighbor had a plum tree like that. She said they got worms in them since she didn't spray, but she just chopped it down. I would love to have a tree like that.

  3. @ Leslie: Aren't they the best!? Too bad she had a worm problem.

    @Emily: It keeps for about a year if you do the sterile hot water bath canning like I did. And of course I don't mind! Thank you so much for reading and linking to me!
