Cherry Jams

Cherry Preserves Recipes

Perfect for Year-round Enjoyment

You don’t need to live in Oregon to enjoy the best of what our land has to offer. Our spreads, jams and chutneys bring the sweet, tart flavor of Oregon cherries to you throughout the year. We’ve found that cherries go well with just about everything -- as a condiment for pork, a spread for cheese and, of course, on a thick slice of toast. Here’s one of our favorites ideas below. What do you do with our jams, spreads and chutneys? We’d love to hear from you!

  • ¼ cup white wine
  • 4 wooden kabobs or toothpicks
  • Salt and pepper


  • Pre heat the oven to 450f
  • Put one of the chicken breasts skin side down in a zip lock bag.
  • Pound with meat clever until chicken is flat and about 1cm thick. Repeat with other chicken breast.
  • Season the chicken, then spread some of the cheese in a line down middle of the pounded meat
  • Bring sides of the chicken up to cover cheese filling and secure by sticking wooden kabobs or toothpicks.
  • Smear the skin with butter and season with salt and pepper. Roast for 30 minutes, then cover with foil and let rest for 10 minutes.
