Cranberry Sangria Jam
- 2 (12 or 16oz) bags of cranberries
- 3 cups sugar
- 2 oranges (zest & juice)
- 1-2 limes (zest & juice)
- Red wine (make sure it's something you'd drink!)
- 1 pouch liquid pectin (optional)
In a large pot, put the cleaned cranberries. Zest and juice the fruit into a large measuring device, and add enough wine to make around 2 1/2 cups total liquid. Dump it into the pot.
Boil for about 6-8 minutes until a lot of the cranberries pop and are soft. At this point, I decided I wanted more "jam" less whole berry, so I used my stick blender.
I've also been told that the cranberries have a lot of natural pectin and would probably thicken up on their own, but since I added the fruit juice and I wanted it definitely "jam" like, I added a pouch of liquid pectin (Certo) at the end and boiled it for one more minute before putting into jars.
Makes enough to fill seven 1/2 pint jars.
