Spiced Cranberry Jam


Hello everyone, today’s recipe is for this special Spiced Cranberry Jam. When I think of cranberries I probably do them a bit of a disservice and automatically go to cranberry sauce. There is actually a lot more you can do with them. Perfect in salads and I like to use dried cranberries when I’m baking.

Although this is probably a bit of a Christmas recipe I’ve decided to share it. We are right at the end of cranberry season but you could also use defrosted frozen cranberries. My favourite thing about this jam is the combination of the cranberries with the cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg.
