I was able to get my hands on some tart cherries even though much of the crop was ruined by frost this year. I love cherry jam made with tart cherries and so used all the cherries to make jam. Unfortunately I had 3 half pint jars of jam crack and break in the canner during processing. One broke in the first batch and two in the second. I am not sure what happened. I properly inspected, washed and preheated all the jars before processing. But it made me sick because of how much I love this jam and how sparse cherries are this year to have three jars ruined.
