Cran-Raspberry Jam Recipe

I'm sure to pick up extra bags of cranberries for the freezer in fall so that I can make this lovely, delicious jam all year-round. My kids love it on peanut butter sandwiches. Jars of this pretty ruby-colored jam also make great gifts. -Marjilee Booth, Chino Hills, California
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Process: 10 min. YIELD:48 servings


  • 2 packages (10 ounces each) frozen sweetened raspberries, thawed
  • 4 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1 package (1-3/4 ounces) powdered fruit pectin
  • 5 cups sugar


  • 1. Drain raspberries, reserving juice; add enough water to juice to measure 1-1/2 cups. Pour into a Dutch oven. Add raspberries and cranberries; stir in pectin. Bring to a full rolling boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Stir in sugar; return to a full rolling boil. Boil and stir 1 minute.
  • 2. Remove from heat; skim off foam. Ladle hot mixture into six hot half-pint jars, leaving 1/4-in. headspace. Remove air bubbles and adjust headspace, if necessary, by adding hot mixture. Wipe rims. Center lids on jars; screw on bands until fingertip tight.

"I see "still in thyme" in the directions, but not on the ingredient list. Should thyme be added, and if so , how much?"

"Hi, Marjilee,

I'd like to try this recipe for Cran-Raspberry Jam.  However, I can't find sweetened frozen raspberries in my area, only non-sweetened.  Any idea how much additional sugar I'd need for the jam to be sweet enough?

"the cran-ras jam is a perfect blend of the tart-sweet-chunky-seeded that is a good spread on almost any baked good."
