Cherries Jubilee was created to celebrate Queen Victoria. Tracy created Cherries Jubilee Jam to celebrate the new prince!
Are you as thrilled about the royal baby news as we are?
As with the royal wedding a couple years back, we just can't seem to hide our excitement for everything William & Kate. So, with cherries in season right now and a reason to celebrate, I decided to head to the kitchen and whip up a jam fit for royalty.
Based on cherries jubilee, the popular dessert made for one of Queen Victoria's Jubilee celebrations, this jam also contains sweet cherries, citrus, and cherry brandy. Since some recipes call for currant jam as a thickener, I added in some red currants to help cut some of the sweetness from the cherries and sugar so that the resulting jam isn't too cloying.
Perfect on a biscuit with your afternoon cup of tea!
If raspberries are still in season where you are, we bet you'd enjoy Tracy's Raspberry Jam Recipe too!
