READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Geema

I haven't yet tried this interesting jamlike spread, but it looks as if it would be delicious on toast, biscuits, or even pancakes. How about a banana/cranberry date spread sandwich?

This is a delightful spread ideal for the holidays or the cranberry lover in your house! Very nice consistancy and perfect to spread on dinner rolls or a homemade bread. Beautiful color, as you might expect from cranberries. The dates add just the right amount of sweetness. I would suggest serving this with poultry, ham or pork. Thanks for posting this, Geema!
