This is not a sweet jam to eat on your peanut butter sandwich, rather a smoky, roasted cherry jam that goes well with savory foods like cheese, grilled pork tenderloin or roasted chicken. Try it on a grilled cheese sandwich with extra-sharp cheddar or fontina cheese.
Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 week.
- 4 cups halved pitted fresh cherries or thawed and drained frozen whole cherries
- 1/2 cup orange juice
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme or 1/2 teaspoon dried
- 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
Combine the cherries, orange juice, thyme, paprika and salt in a 9 by 13-inch baking pan. Roast, stirring 3 or 4 times, until the cherries are starting to break down and the liquid has thickened, 35 to 45 minutes.
