High bush cranberries are not true cranberries, they are a shrubby plant with clusters of red berries that are quite acidic. This jelly is superb on toast, English muffins, with cream cheese or is also good with meat,poultry or fish. Please note that these berries smell like horrid stinky socks when the juice is being extracted from them, I like a well ventilated kitchen for this step. I also freeze the extracted juice before I make the jelly. It's convenient and it also seems to mellow the flavour.
