Holiday Cherry Jam Spread

Updated: Nov 21, 2018

Cherry jam spread is the perfect compliment to Belletoile cheese for your holiday party charcuterie board. It can also be a homemade gift for a friend paired with a wedge of Belletoile and your favorite holiday wine. All you need are a few ingredients:


  • 2 pounds fresh or frozen cherries, pitted and coarsely chopped

  • 3/4 cup sugar

  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice

Place a saucer or small plate in the freezer. This will be used to test the jam consistency later.

Combine cherries, sugar, and lemon juice in a large saucepan over high heat and bring to a boil, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring frequently, for 20 minutes, then remove from the heat.The jam will still be a bit thin, but should coat a spoon.

To test for completion, place a small amount of jam on the plate from the freezer.

Touch the jam with a spoon or your finger. If it wrinkles, it’s ready to be enjoyed. If not, simmer for another 5 minutes and repeat.

Transfer the jam to a glass jar and cool completely. Seal and store in the refrigerator.
