Cranberry, Grape And Orange

Yes, cranberry grape and orange jam! I put it down three times just to let that sink in. It might sound like a lot for a jam. But thrust me it’s just the right amount without any ingredient overpowering the other. It’s a revamp of the good ol’ cranberry sauce. And this combination is sure to surprise your guests this season. It’s quite easy to make and can be done in less than 30 minutes. And will leave a lasting impression.

 

Cranberry Jam or Sauce?

In the title I called it a jam but I also mentioned it as a sauce. Which one is it? Usually there is a big difference between a jam and a sauce. However, when it comes to cranberry the differences become smaller to almost nonexistent.  Technically a jam is a sweet condiment of fruit cooked down with sugar. And a sauce is usually a savory slightly thick liquid served with meat. So, I can understand the confusion as cranberries are usually served with meat. In the case of cranberries, it is used interchangeably. Because the cranberries are so sour you need to add a sweetener which brings it closer to a jam than a typical sauce.

Have it With…
