Cranberry-orange jam

Yield: 3 Pints

Measure Ingredient
4 cups (1 lb) fresh or frozen cranberries
3 cups Water
¾ cup Orange juice
¼ cup Lemon juice
4 cups Sugar
2 Pouches Certo liquid pectin

Place cranberries and water in a heavy-bottomed 8-10 qt pan. Bring to a boil over high heat; reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, untill berries begin to pop (about 10 minutes). Drain well, reserving liquid. Place cranberries in a blender or food processor and whirl until smooth; add enough of the reserved liquid to berries to make 4 cups.

Return berry puree to pan. Stir in orange juice, lemon juice, and sugar until well blended. Bring to a full rolling boil over high heat, stirring contantly; then boil, stirring for one minute. Remove from heat and stir in pectin all at once. Skim off any foam.

Ladle hot jam into hot, sterilized half-pint jars, leaving ¼" headspace. Wipe rims and threads clean, seal, blah, blah, blah.

Process for 5 minutes in boiling water bath. Makes about 6 half pints.
