It's that time of year... I've only been waiting only since mid-end of winter,
when I couldn't find any fresh cranberries in the grocery store anymore!!!
I was shopping last week and I SAW THEM!!
They were beautiful!
I could NOT resist and I bought 5 bags of fresh cranberries!!
(Then of course, I HAD to buy 4 pounds of fresh strawberries and 5 giant oranges!)
I made Christmas jam for the first time just before Christmas last year and saved only
2 small jars for our consumption!
That was a mistake... for it is truly delicious, and I had no clue that fresh cranberries
were only available seasonally!
I set out yesterday to make 5 batches of my new favorite!
I bought 4 dozen jars to use as gifts ...
the store only had 2 dozen of my 'tried and true' beloved, Ball jars...
so I opted to get 2 dozen of a different 'off' brand.
They were pretty enough and would make for great gifts!
It's a good thing that I water bath my jams... because
I couldn't really tell if the seals took or not before!
In case you are wondering about the recipe.... here it is!
SUPER EASY, SUPER DELICIOUS
SUPER CHRISTMAS GIFT!
My lesson learned... stick with Ball Jars!!
