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.
