3 cups pitted and chopped Bing cherries
1 cup crushed pineapple, drained
7 cups granulated sugar
1 box powdered pectin
1/4 teaspoon almond extract

Stem and pit fully ripe cherries. Chop fine.
Measure fruit into large saucepan, combining cherries and pineapple.

Add pectin and sugar; mix well.

Place over high heat; bring to a full rolling boil and boil hard for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.

Skim off foam with metal spoon. Add almond extract. Stir and skim for 5 minutes to cool slightly and prevent floating fruit.
