Cherberry Jam

Cherberry Jam is a delicious mixture of strawberries and cherries, that makes both fruits taste even more delicious!  This is an easy jam recipe that is perfect for beginning canners.

Cherberry Jam - a combination of cherries & strawberries - is my new favorite jam. Try it and I bet it will soon be your favorite too!

I used to can jam & jelly all the time with my mom when I was young but it’s been many years since I’ve canned.  Now that I’ve moved back to Idaho, I’m sure I will be canning a whole lot more.  If you love canning jam, you’ll want to check out our Blue Raspberry Jam, as well as our Apple Pie Jam.

Last week, Jamie, Kerry, my mom, and I all got together to can.  It was a lot of work but also a lot of fun! If you follow us on instagram or Facebook, you may have seen pictures for our canning adventure!

Mom had a bumper crop of cherries and we had picked, and picked, and picked them in August.  We juiced some for jelly, pitted and mashed some for jam, and prepared some for cherry pie.  During this time, mom ran into one of her friends at the store.  As there were talking about all of mom’s cherries, her friend told her we had to try Cherberry jam – a mixture of sour cherries and strawberries.  

So we mashed up cherries and strawberries together and froze them to can later when it was cooler.  Last week it was finally time to try it out!  And I’m so glad that friend suggested it!  Because Cherberry jam is GOOD!  In fact, It’s REALLY GOOD!


Cherberry Jam

Cherberry Jam
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes


  • 2 cups sour cherries, pitted, de-stemmed, and mashed
  • 2 cups strawberries, de-stemmed and mashed
  • 1 pkg sure jell
  • 1 tsp butter
  • 4 3/4 cups sugar


  1. Place fruit, sure jell, & butter into a large sauce pan. Place on stove on high heat.
  2. Meanwhile, measure sugar into a separate bowl.
  3. Prepare jars, lids, & rings for canning.
  4. When fruit mixture is at a rolling boil, add sugar. Return to rolling boil while stirring constantly and boil for one minute while continuing to stir.
  5. Pour jelly into prepared jars. Wipe the rim of the jars with damp cloth and add lid and ring. Twisting ring as tight as possible.
  6. Turn jars over and leave for at least 5 minutes before turning upright.


Any jars that do not seal place in fridge and use right away.

 On the recipe, I said to use 2 cups of both cherries and strawberries but you can use more or less of each one, depending on what you have.  The most important part is to have 4 cups total not having equal amounts of each.
