I love cranberry. I mean really love cranberry. I am one of those people that want everything pumpkin from Oct-mid Nov and then cranberry for the rest of the year. My Cranberry Salsa recipe is well loved, so I decide to make some jam using nearly the same ingredients.  It’s very easy to make and very tasty!

I didn’t chop my apple very small so there were big chunks of it, which I removed. If you want to can the jam, I recommend that you chop the apple smaller before cooking. Apple works as a natural pectin.

After it cooked a little bit I blended up in our Magic Bullet. Refrigerate.

I brought some over to my friend (the hand model below) and she couldn’t get enough. She tried it on crackers and some sweet lemon bread.
