Cranberry Marmalade

Recipe by Sharon123

What a lovely way to use those cranberries when they you are tired of making the traditional sauce!

Top Review by Jonathan H.

As a pastry chef I am always dubious of recipes. I tried this recipe, and once I figured out the amount of pectin, I was blown away with the result. This is just fantastic and I highly recommend it. I made a double batch today to give away for Christmas. Regarding the pectin: in Canada we don't have bottles of pectin, but have pouches of liquid pectin. The recipe requires 3 ounces of liquid pectin (or 1 pouch of Certo liquid pectin). Thanks for a fantastic recipe!!!
