  • 300 g frozen cranberries
  • 300 g jam sugar
  • 1 orange grated zest
  • 1 orange juice


  • Put a saucer into the fridge to test for set later.
  • Thoroughly wash a large jam jar and place in the oven on an oven tray, set the oven to 100C.
  • Put all the ingredients in a medium sized pan.
  • Heat gently until the sugar has all dissolved.
  • Bring to the boil and keep at a rolling boil for 4 minutes (with jam sugar) or 8 minutes with granulated sugar.
  • Take off the heat and place a teaspoonful of the jam onto the cold saucer, put it back in the fridge for 5 minutes, then push the jam with your finger. If it wrinkles the jam is ready. If not put the jam back on the heat and boil for another 2-3 minutes before testing again.
  • Ladle into the jar and leave to cool for 10 minutes before putting on the lid.
  • Leave the jam to cool completely before use.


If you would like to use the jam more quickly, spoon some onto a plate and it will cool more quickly.
