Homemade Cherry Jam Recipe

Several years ago, I was in France during the height of cherry season. The farmers markets we visited in small towns in Provence all had tables heaped high with beautiful cherries.

Of course, we ate as many as possible and tucked them into bread puddings for dessert, but I yearned for my big copper jam pot and dehydrator.

Now, at home, I make the most of cherry season with the recipes below.

Ingredients for all:

• Fresh cherries
• About 1 cup of inexpensive vodka or brandy
• Cane sugar
