Jams question.

I have a question about jams and jellies and am hoping someone here would have enough experience to help me out. I would like to be able to make some jam for my boyfriend, and unfortunately am not too terribly experienced in this field. Last time I tried, I was working at a daycare and was helping the owner make freezer jam. I don't think I did a very awesome job, but that is besides the point.

When going through all the kinds that I could probably make he decided he wanted a cherry-grape mix. I'm not sure how to go about doing this though, or if it's even possible. Would I want to make the jams separately and then mix them together after, or do I make them like a regular jam, throwing it all together at once and cooking it like regular?

I don't even know if this is going to taste very good anyway, and can find very little information about mixed jams and such when searching online.

So, um... Help!
