Ultimate Slow Cooker Cranberry Jam

cranberry jam recipe

Winter in a jar.
Cranberries are everywhere! When life gives you any abundance of fruit (on sale) what do you do? Make jam!
This is so easy and so crazy good you will be eating it straight out of the jar. Spoon optional.
Cranberries are not just for Thanksgiving. If you love tart with light sweet notes you must try this.
We’ve eaten this on toast, on bagels with a little cream cheese and yes, a lot straight out of the jar. If you are scared of full canning, just put it in any jar or bowl and pop it in the refrigerator.
The amount is small enough to make one jar at a time.
You want dump and dash? This is it! Happy eating!

    This sounds really good! And it reminds me of the cranberry sauce my sister makes – she puts cranberries, and an orange (I think the entire orange – there are definitely some peels in there) and a bunch of sugar in a blender. SO good!

  3. We make a cranberry pinot noir jam for our artisan line, and it's pretty tasty. I LOVE using cranberry jam/jelly outside of Thanksgiving. It's delicious on everything! And it sets SO easily, you don't have to worry about it being runny!

  4. OMG that looks sooooo yummy!

  5. I was surprised how easily it sets!

  6. How long is the jam good for in the refrigerator?

  7. I have a cranberry jello salad of my grandma’s I like to make for holidays. I have never had cranberries as a spread. Sweet?? Any other fruits you’d suggest?
