When you want homemade jam to serve with cheese but no time for canning jam, nothing beats my doctored-up version. Make sure you use chunky cranberry sauce, with whole cranberries, to make the jam, and not the smooth kind.

Ingredients

  • ½ cup canned cranberry sauce, made with whole cranberries
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ¼ cup golden raisins
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Directions

Mix the ingredients together well and season with the salt and pepper.

Cranberry Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Cranberry Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
