Cherry-Berry Jam

recipe
Homemade jam is a luxurious splurge for morning toast or plain yogurt. Minimal sugar is added to this recipe, so the flavor of the fruit shines. Use a bit of this jam to sweeten marinades for grilled pork or chicken. This recipe yields enough jam to keep some and share some with friends. It should stay fresh for up to three weeks in the refrigerator.
