2 more pounds

After we had pitted the 8 pounds of cherries there were still about 2-3 pounds of remaining cherries. I couldn't quite decide what to do with them. But I was at Farm and Fleet earlier getting some Ball jars and bought a dozen pint jars. This would be a great oppurtunity to use those if I made some cherry jam. The only issue I had with this was that the cherries are really tart. I figured I'd add a bunch of sugar and hope for the best. I always figure if I don't like them because they are too tart, I'm sure I have some friends that will enjoy the tartness. I wished that I had canned the batch of mulberry preserves so I canned these so that I can use them in the months to come. Here's the finished product:
