Lots of cherries not real sweet. I will be buying again

I love all of the products from Honey Ville. My favorite is the Chokecherry products. They taste like my Grandma made when I was young

I love black cherries and was disappointed with this jam. It is rather bland and I could not taste the cherries
Good, but not a replacement for the no-longer-available Black Cherry Jelly
The review title says it all. I tried the jam because the jelly was jettisoned by Honeyville. The texture of the jam is too dense, and the addition of the cherry liquor negatively impacts the flavor (at least to my taste).
Don't get me wrong, I don't dislike the jam. But I much preferred the jelly. So, I am experimenting with my own recipes for black cherry jelly, and if I get close enough to what I remember the Honeyville product being, I'll discontinue buying the jam.
I've been a long time Honeyville customer and will continue to buy the whipped cinnamon honey (still my favorite item here) until Honeyville decides to drop it from the line.
Let's hope that doesn't happen...
Miss the jelly

Very good jams, however I do miss the assortment of jellies. Any chance of a return of the jelly flavors?
LOVE THIS JAM

The Black Cherry Jam is to die for!!!!
Good but not as good as the jelly
I absolutely loved the Black Cherry jelly that used to be available through Honeyville Colorado. Sadly, on my last attempt to reorder the jelly, I discovered that it is no longer available - and according to Customer Service, Honeyville will not bring the product back. They say more customers prefer the jam.
I am one customer who does not prefer the jam. Given that it has basically the same ingredients, I gave the jam a try. It does taste a lot like the jam, but something is missing - or maybe there's something there that I would rather it didn't. It seems to me that the jam is slightly sweeter than the jelly. There was a slight bite to the jelly that's simply not in the jam. There also seems to be another subtlety (beyond the textural difference between jelly and jam) that I can't quite put my finger on, but to me it's noticeable.
I still have half a jar of the jelly that I go back to every few days to compare to the jam. I had hoped that by now I'd adapt to the jam, but I haven't. As it stands, I ordered some black cherry juice elsewhere and will experiment with making my own jelly. Wish me luck.
To Honeyville, if you won't be bringing back the jelly, could you at least share the recipe with me?
I still love the Cinnamon Honey and will continue to be a Honeyville customer. If THAT ever goes away, so do I.
