Orange Bread & Cranberry Orange Jam

Merry Christmas everyone ~

Today I'm posting two recipes because they go so well together.  A few weeks ago I created this cranberry orange jam for gift giving.  It's a perfect compliment for orange bread which you could also give away loaves of at the same time.

Cranberry Orange Jam

2 cups cranberries
1/2 cup orange juice
1 cup strawberries
3 cups sugar
1/2 tsp orange zest
1 pouch liquid fruit pectin

Place cranberries in a food processor to break down into small bits.  Combine in medium saucepan with orange juice, strawberries, sugar, zest and liquid pectin and cook over medium heat until thickened.  Pour into clean canning jars and seal in a water bath for 10 minutes.

Orange Bread

1/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
1 orange - 1 tsp zest from the orange and then use all the juice
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

Cream together sugar and butter.  Add in eggs, yogurt and juice from your orange. Gradually stir in dry ingredients.  Pour into a greased bread pan and bake for 50 minutes at 350°.
