Cranberry Jam

Cloudy day, rainy day, lazy day, cold day = staying at home with pjamas and making something nice 😀 This is the life in the village, oh I love it! 

I found a treasure in the fridge, a 500gr of fresh Cranberries! I bought it last year (sounds so old, but hey! no worries, I got them 2 days before 2012 ended ha ha ha!). I was thinking to make a Cranberries Butter Jam, but I have no food processor, so, I left the butter out, ta da… Cranberry Jam 😀

It’s very easy and tasty! 🙂 Want to try? ela come over to the village to experience Winter and to enjoy the toast with homemade Cranberry jam! or try to make it at home by yourself 🙂



  • 500gr Fresh cranberries
  • 100gr Brown sugar – or depends on how you like it
  • 2 tbsp Vanilla
  • 2 cups of Water


  • It’s time to chop chop chop mince mince mince the cranberries – fun time! Haris was doing it for me 😀
  • Use saucepan, add water and cranberries, and bring to boil. Slow cook style.
  • Add brown sugar and stir it well, until all water vapored, you will notice the cranberries become very thick, and make sure all the cranberries are cooked/almost melted!
  • Add vanilla, and taste it, add sugar if you need more.
  • Add orange zest – only if you like it, it will give a different sensation to the jam. Mine is plain, because there is no orange in the fridge 🙂
  • Once it becomes very thick, you’re done – close the fire and leave it to cool down before putting it in a jar
  • Make sure to sterilize the jar by boiling it for 10mins and wipe it dry
  • enJOY your homemade Cranberry Jam


Happy cooking! x
