Cranberry Jam

Recipe for creating a Fruit Jam that's Red

Cranberry Jam



• 1.5 cups fresh cranberries
• 1 cinnamon stick
• 1/2 cup maple syrup
• 1/2 cup water
• 1 tablespoon orange zest
• 1 tablespoon orange juice
• pinch or two of sea salt


– Place all ingredients in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil. Using the back of a wooden spoon, smoosh and pop the cranberries against the side of the saucepan. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 20 minutes.
– Remove cinnamon stick. Discard.
– Using an immersion blender, blend until desired consistency. I like mine a little chunky and junky. If you are bothered by the skins and seeds, press mixture through a fine sieve. Pour into a jar. When cooled, cover and refrigerate for up to 5 days.
