Cranberry, Port & Apple Jam

I make this every year, it sells very well and is absolutely delicious. Use it as a jam or serve with ham or turkey.

30 mins


  • 2lbs Cranberries
  • ½ pint Water
  • 2lbs Sour Cooking Apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 4lbs Sugar with Pectin
  • 6 tbsp Port


  1. Put cranberries and water in pan.
  2. Add the apples, cover and simmer for about 15 mins, until the fruit is soft.
  3. Remove from heat, add sugar and stir unti sugar is dissolved. Return to heat and boil for about 5 min. Test a little on a cold saucer and it is ready when the jam wrinkles when moved.
  4. Return from the heat and leave to cool for 10 mins, then stir in port.
  5. Pour into warmed jars and cover when cold.

Store in a cool, dark cupboard.
