Cherry Jam

Cherry Jam


3lbs cherries (pitted and chopped)*
6 1/2 cups vegan sugar
2x 3fl oz packets of fruit pectin
1 Tbls Agar powder


In a large pot add cherries and sugar on a medium heat until sugar has melted.
Bring to boil and add pectin.
Let boil for 5 minutes then turn heat down to medium.
Whisk in agar powder and wait till it becomes more jelly like.
Put a small amount of jam on a ceramic or glass plate and put it in the freezer for a couple of minutes, if it solidifies then the jam is ready to can!
Pour into sterilized jars and put the lids on not too tight.
Once cooled down then tighten lids.

*This is what happens when you pit cherries and don't pay attention...
