Canning mixed fruit is easy and makes a great beginner project. It provides you with a taste of summer all year, and can easily be adapted to what you have on hand. This time I had beautiful, BIG, nectarines
I made this lovely cherry jam with hints of lemon and the smoothness of vanilla bean. Because cherries don't have a lot of natural pectin you will need pectin to help with the gelling process. I decided to try a liquid pectin.
