This easy homemade cranberry jam comes together in just minutes and requires only 4 simple ingredients!
We spent the last two days making snowflakes. That sounds crazy and it kind of is, but the end result was really cool. I shared a picture over the weekend when we were only beginning our long craft session. We ended up hanging them from the kid’s bedroom ceilings. It looks magical, with giant twisted snowflakes falling from the ceiling. We used this tutorial from Elli blog, on how to make 3d snowflakes…complete with free printables! A perfect craft for kids and adults!
Also, what is going on with this weather?! I know… I’m still a broken record but seriously. I keep checking the weather, just curious about what is coming our way for the holiday weekend. Christmas Eve is supposed to be in the mid 60s… in New England! That’s easily 30 degrees above normal. Just crazy! I’m trying not to complain, but a white Christmas makes things way more magical. Maybe this will mean we’ll be able to get outside and play for a change. Hopefully the rain will hold off!
I feel like I’m the last person on the planet to watch Love Actually. Everyone I know seems to have watched it. I have it in my queues and watch lists but I’ve yet to actually sit down and watch it. I’m not a big fan of his, so that’s probably part of it. Is it really a must see movie or what?
I’ve loved cranberries for as long as I can remember. They offer the perfect balance of sweet and tart. And, are by far the best late Fall fruit. I may be biased since my love for them is so strong, but that’s okay.
If you only make one more cranberry dish this year, it should be this cranberry jam. It is the easiest jam I’ve ever made. Just a few simple ingredients and 30 minutes later you have an incredibly flavorful jam, perfect for slathering on your favorite breakfast pastries, bread and desserts!
