I was able to snag a couple of bags for $2.88 each. They already come pitted AND they were picked at the height of ripeness before they were frozen. It's a win/win in my books. To make the jam you will need enough cherries that once chopped will equal 6 cups.
In a large pot stir together:
6 cups prepared fruit
1 box certo
1/4 tsp almond extract (optional)
Bring to a boil over medium heat then add 6 cups white sugar all at once. Stirring frequently so that the sugar doesn't burn to the bottom of the pot.
Bring back up to a boil and boil hard 1 minute and remove pot from heat source.
Pour into sterilized jars and apply screw bands and lids. Process by water canning for 10 minutes. Allow to set for at least 1 day before use. Makes 8 250ml jars. Enjoy!
