So, ya'll did buy extra cranberries and stash them in the freezer for later use during the year, right? Well, if not, there should still be some available in the supermarket. I always buy extras and freeze them because I really like making cranberry sauce throughout the year to go with my homemade cottage cheese.
I found this recipe for Cranberry Jam in a Taste of Home Canning magazine I bought earlier this year and decided to give it a try. This is the second batch I've made, it is sooo good and isn't overly sweet like a lot of jams and jellies. Several people commented that their jam didn't set up but mine has set up really nicely both times I've made it. I have been using it as one of the fillings for the Rugelach I've been selling at the Farmer's Market too, yum!! I just can't bring myself to buy jam from the store anymore because of the price and the fact that I'm not overly fond of some of the ingredients used, even in the more expensive ones.
I know THE Holidays are over but what a nice gift this would make for Valentine's Day tucked in a basket with some homemade Buttermilk Biscuits. :)
