Cranberry Nectarine this jam came out of a desperation to empty my freezer of my left over 2020 fruits. I buy in bulk during the season and what I cannot use right away I freeze. I find that to get the fruit peak is so important to the taste. Many fruits bought out of seasons need extra sweetener to pump up the flavor.
Two things are that right now cranberries are so ready available and so very tart-ta-licious. Mix that with Summer Nectarine and you have a winner taking cranberry to the next level. I did not take many pictures this go round but the recipe is what you came here for.
Ingredients- Makes 8 to 12 pint jars
- 16 cups chopped nectarines
- 2 bags of cranberries
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
Once you have combined all the ingredients let the jam simmer for at least on hour stirring to keep it from sticking on the bottom of your pot. Once your jam has come to a nice gel you can get your jars ready.
