PrintEmail Ingredients 1 -- (12-ounce) bad cranberries, rinsed and picked over1/2 cup water1/2 cup granulated sugar3/4 cup packed brown sugar1/2 teaspoon sea salt1/4 teaspoon ground ginger1/8 teaspoon allspice1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon -- Freshly ground black pepper, to taste Instructions Add all ingredients to a heavy-bottomed 2-quart pot, and stir to combine. Cover pot and bring mixture to a boil over medium-high heat (keep a close eye because if it boils over it'll make a mess of your stove—I speak from experience and too much multitasking!). Remove lid, reduce heat to a simmer and let cook, stirring occasionally, until thick and jam-like, about 15 to 17 minutes. Let cool to room temperature or chill before serving. May be prepared and stored in an air-tight container up to two days in advance. Recipe by Jennifer Perillo.
