I have a passion for cooking, and it's probably my grandmother I can thank for it. She was a marvelous cook who could really stretch a food dollar. All the same, I've had my share of trial and error over the years. Shortly after we were married, my husband and I were invited to a family picnic. I made the prettiest potato salad you'd ever hope to seen. There was only one problem with that dish I was so proud of—I hadn't cooked the potatoes!

MY REVIEW

I really wanted to make this recipe as directed, but could not find any cranberries as they were not in season, but I had a bunch of strawberries that had to be used. Thus, I substituted blueberries for the cranberries. Cut back the sugar to 4 lbs, added 1 tsp lemon juice and 1 tsp orange flavoring. The results were outstanding. I look forward to making this recipe when I can find cranberries.

This is probably my most favorite of all my jam recipes. Deliciously sweet and tart. I freeze cranberries when they are in stores during the holidays and then make this jam when strawberries are in season.
