Cherry Vanilla Jam

It's the cheery cherry time of year.   If you're lucky enough to score some sour pie cherries, then try this jam.   It's really excellent with whipped cream cheese over pancakes. 

Cherry Vanilla Jam

4 cups pitted cherries
1 cup water or juice
4 Tablespoons low-sugar pectin [such as Ball or Dutch All Natural Lite]
2 cups sugar
2 Tablespoons vanilla extract

Combine the cherries, water/juice and pectin.    Bring to hard boil.  [A hard boil is one you can't stir down.]   Stir constantly and boil hard for 1 minute.    Add sugar and vanilla.   Stir well and return to a hard boil.   Stir constantly and boil hard for 1 minute.    Ladle into jars.  Cap with clean lids and rings.
