Really good on a cold turkey or ham sandwich!


  1. In a large stainless or enamel pot combine cranberries and juice and cook until berries pop and are soft, around 25 minutes.
  2. Stir to keep from sticking.
  3. Puree either in a blender, processor.
  4. Return to pot and add remaining ingredients and cook until thick, still stirring for around 15 minutes.
  5. Ladle into clean hot jars leaving 1/2 inch head space and process in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes at altitudes up to 1000 feet.

This recipe is very tasty with a zing! The only thing I would suggest is making this for half pints as I prepared six jars as required by the recipe and it only filled 2.5 jars...just a suggestion. Thanks

This was very good. It has a nice tang,isn't to sweet and the color is beautiful. You must use pure maple syrup. Do not use imitation. The pure syrup really stands out. I found using an immersion blender was alot easier than transfering to a stand blender/processor. It also made about 7 half-pints not 6.5 pints.
