Be prepared. I have fresh cranberries on the brain. I am so in love with these little gems. Today is the kick off for about 50 million cranberry recipes. I exaggerate but I do have 4 fresh cranberry recipes about to make their debut and it all started with one key recipe, this quick and easy cranberry ginger jam.
Cranberry Ginger Jam has 3 simple ingredients. You read that right – THREE. It’s sweet. It’s tart. It’s amazing. Over the next few days I will have several more cranberry recipes, from a thanksgiving leftovers recipe-turkey cranberry flatbread, to Cranberry Ginger Crumble Bars for holiday baking, and they both utilize this simple recipe. Is that warning enough to double your batch?
First you need to make sure you grab an extra bag or two of cranberries. Or maybe 10, because cranberry season is so short and you will want this jam all year ’round. You may want to grab some of the new Gourmet Garden lightly dried ginger to make it even easier but you can also use fresh ginger.Print
