Cranberries 2

Cranberry Jam

You can make this as jam to spread on toast or you can pour over a plain cheesecake.  Cranberry Jam says Christmas!

INGREDIENTS

12 Ounces Fresh Cranberries

1 Cup Sugar

1/2 Cup Orange Juice

1 Cup Water

Place cranberries, sugar, orange juice, and water into a medium-size heavy-duty saucepan over a medium heat.  Stir occasionally and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer for 25 minutes until slightly thickened. Remember that jam will continue to thicken as it cools so you don’t want to overcook it.  Remove from heat and force jam through a fine-mesh sieve over a medium-size bowl.  Throw away the skins and seeds.  Pour into jam jars and cool.  Makes about 2 cups.
