California cherries are in season now! And that means making cherry jam in bread machine.
As “America’s super fruit,” cherries offer the vital nutrition for a long and healthy life. One cup of cherries contains 90 calories with an ample supply of fiber, protein, and vitamin A and C, says the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).
For my bread machine jam the recipe is very simple and straight forward.
You will need:
- 2 cups of pitted cherries
- 1,5 cups of sugar
- 3 tbsp of pectin
I used jam function on my bread machine which took 1 hour and 5 min.
