Cranberry & Strawberry Jam

Another gift giving treat this year is this jam that I made.  It's a perfect topping for an orange cranberry bread or biscuits.








Cranberry & Strawberry Jam

12 oz fresh cranberries, rinsed and chopped
16 oz fresh strawberries, rinsed, hulled and chopped
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 1/2 cups sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 package Sure-Jell


Place fruit and 1/2 cup sugar in a large saucepan and let sit covered for one hour.  Remove lid and cook over medium heat.  Adding in brown sugar and sugar.  Put sugar in 1/2 cup at a time and taste.  What I think was good might be not sweet enough for you.  Make the package of Sure-Jell to their instructions.  Stir into fruit mixture.  Before it's done, add in cinnamon.  Can or place in decorative containers for gift giving.
