Oh my goodness! I bought post-season cranberries for $1.00 per pound with the intention of making this jam. I was NOT disappointed! It is very good. I only licked the spoon, but can't wait to spread this ruby red jam onto a golden biscuit. Thanks so much for posting! PS I also used my hand blender instead of a strainer or food mill. Worked perfectly.
This is wonderful! At first I thought that the amount of vinegar may be overwhelming but it is just right in the recipe. The spices are a great blend with the cranberries; the color is that of rubies. I made it exactly as posted and it is marvelous on toast or english muffins. I will be giving a few jars away and keep a few for myself. It's just the beginning of the cranberry season so I will more than likely make this again--without adjusting anything. Thanks for posting this!
I made this for Christmas presents. It was my first jelly and very easy to make. Since I don't have a food mill or a hand-blender I used a dough-cutter to chop the berries. This jelly is absolutely delicious and great to make around the holidays if you want something fitting for the season.
