Cranberry Strawberry Jam
This jam is ultra flavorful, and it will cause your sun-starved salivary glands to kick into high gear. Sweet strawberries are always the life of the party, and we've invited tart cranberries as well, making for a bright red flavor explosion. You'll find the texture of these preserves relatively chunky, but if you prefer your jam smoother, feel free to whiz your just-defrosted fruit a few more times in the food processor for a finer finished product.
I enjoy this incredibly colorful jam most when it's spread on a bagel during a particularly cold winter morning.
Note: Don't skip out on the tiny amount of butter—it goes a long way to prevent foaming.
