Smoky Roasted Cherry Jam
Since this isn’t a sweet jam, it goes well with savory foods like roasted chicken, grilled pork or you could even try it on a cheese sandwich.
Makes 1½ cups
- 4 cups pitted fresh cherries or thawed and drained frozen whole cherries
- ½ cup orange juice
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme or ½ teaspoon dried
- ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
- ¼ teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 450ºF.
Combine cherries, orange juice, thyme, paprika and salt in a 9-by-13-inch baking pan. Roast for about 35 to 45 minutes, stirring 3 or 4 times, until the cherries start to break down and the liquid has thickened. Store in container refrigerated for one week.
