Holiday Cranberry Jam Recipe

Holiday Cranberry Jam Recipe

This cranberry jam is one I make at Christmas for family and friends. I especially like serving it for brunch, along with muffins or toast and fruit. —Sandee Berg, Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Process: 10 min. YIELD:40 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1 medium orange, peeled and broken into sections
  • 1 carton (16 ounces) frozen sliced strawberries, thawed
  • 3 cups sugar

Directions

  • 1. In a food processor, coarsely process cranberries and orange sections. Place in a Dutch oven with strawberries and sugar. Bring to a full rolling boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Boil for 1 minute.
  • 2. Remove from the heat and stir in the pectin. Skim off the foam. Carefully ladle into hot half-pint jars, leaving 1/4-in. headspace. Remove air bubbles; wipe rims and adjust lids. Process for 10 minutes in a boiling-water canner. Yield: 5 half-pints.
