Sparkling Strawberry and Cranberry Holiday Jam
Sparkling Strawberry and Cranberry Holiday Jam
  • 2 ½ quarts strawberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 – 12 oz. package cranberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 5 pounds sugar
  • 2 – 3 oz. packages liquid fruit pectin
  • Additional Materials
  • Mason jars
  • Printable Gift Labels here (hole-punched) – print on white cardstock for best results (free)
  • Decorative ribbon or strong glue to attach labels to jars or lids
  1. In a food processor, pulse the strawberries and cranberries. Depending on preference, fruit may be processed to a finely chopped texture for a chunkier jam, or completely smooth.
  2. Pour the processed fruit into a large heavy-bottomed pot. Add sugar over medium-high heat, bring the fruit and sugar mixture to a full rolling boil. Boil for 1 minute.
  3. Remove the pot from the heat and add the liquid fruit pectin, stirring to mix completely.
  4. Allow the jam to cool for 5 minutes, and then skim off the layer of foam on the top.
  5. Quickly ladle the hot jam mixture into sterile half-pint jars, leaving ¼ inch headspace. Wipe jar rims clean, cover with lids and screw on the jar bands. Process the jars for 5 minutes in a boiling water bath.
