Cranberry Jam

Cranberry Jam
  • 200g (7oz) fresh cranberries
  • 65g ( 2½ oz)1/2 Cup finely chopped red onion
  • 350ml (12 fl oz) apple cider
  • 60ml (2½ fl oz) balsamic vinegar
  • 45ml (3 Tablespoons) honey

  • 1.25ml (1/4 Teaspoon) ground cinnamon
  • 0.6ml (1/8 Teaspoon) ground cardamom
  • 1 pinch of salt
  1. Place the cranberries, cider and chopped onion in a pan, and bring to the boil over a medium heat.
  2. Simmer until the berries are soft. This should be 5 to 10 minutes.
  3. Mash the mixture well, or transfer to a blender if you prefer a smooth pulp.
  4. Return to the pan, and add the vinegar, orange juice, spices, salt and honey.
  5. Bring back to the boil and leave for about 25 minutes, until thick and ready to set.
  6. Remove any scum, and pour into hot, sterilized jars.
  7. Seal well, and store somewhere cool.
This jam can sometimes go off after about a month, so make in small quantities at first until you know its life expectancy.
