Cran-Raspberry Honey Spread

Honey gives this tangy spread its sweetness. I came up with the recipe way back when our family first took up beekeeping and we had a bumper crop. —J. Fleming, Almonte, Ontario

    I made this three years ago and I loved it as well as everyone I shared it with. I’ll be making it again this year.

    I love to give this as a xmas gift. However, I eliminate the extra sugar and use only honey. And instead of liquid pectin, use Pomona's Universal Pectin. It allows you to make jam without tons and tons of sugar. The combo of cranberries and raspberries is really tasty.
