Cranberry Marmalade

(Mom)

1 med. orange
1 lemon
1 lb. cranberries (4 cups)
1-1/2 cups sugar
2 cups water
1 stick cinnamon, broken up
6 whole cloves

Cut orange and lemon in quarters and discard seeds. Slice paper thin.

Combine cranberries, sugar and water in large saucepan and bring to a boil. Boil, uncovered, until berries pop, about 8 minutes. Tie cinnamon and cloves loosely in small piece of cheesecloth and add along with orange and lemon slices.

Simmer, stirring often, until thick, about 15 minutes.

Lifft out and open spice bag and put a small piece of cinnamon in each of 8 sterilized jelly jars. Ladle cranberry mixture into jars. Top with paraffin. (Makes eight 6 oz jelly jars).

Excellent, I've been looking for a recipe that doesn't call for 6.5 cups of sugar (ohhh my teeth!)
Thanks ☺
