Now that the holidays are over you can find whole cranberries on sale in grocery stores! Why not make some delicious cranberry jam?
1 bag of whole cranberries - washed
zest and juice of one orange
1 1/4 C. sugar
3/4 C. water
dash of cinnamon, or fresh grated ginger, or both!
Pour your washed cranberries into a food processor and pulse until they become the consistency you like (minced to pieces for a smoother jam, larger pieces for chunky).
Put the cranberries and the rest of the ingredients in a 2-quart pan. Let sit for about 10 minutes to macerate, then bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring frequently. Let the jam cook for about 25 minutes, let cool, pour into jars and store in the fridge for up to a month.
How simple is that?
Cranberries are really good for you, full of antioxidants! Sure this recipe contains white sugar...but definitely NO high fructose corn syrup or preservatives!
Really good on some sprouted wheat bread!
