Forever Nigella - Cranberry Jam

I found this Forever Nigella Challenge over at Maison Cupcake blog you can find all the details and rules (they are not restricting rules which is great because I struggle with some challenges) anyway I was a bit fed up becuase I had made Nigella's Easy Sticky Toffee Pudding from Nigella Bites for our Christmas Pudding, but hadn't taken any photographs and that would have been a perfect entry.

However, not to be beaten, I had flick through Feast and found chapter called 'If it's Christmas it must be Cranberries'.  I had a bag of fresh cranberries in the fridge and no immediate plans for them so I decided to make Cranberry Jam. One of the rules is that you can't reproduce any of Nigella's recipes verbatim, so as I didn't make 'two changes' to this recipe, you will need to buy the book if you want to find out how to make it!

Cranberry Jam 
Nigella Lawson - Feast

I tested mine on a chilled saucer to check for set

Nigella suggests spreading this lovely, sweet and sharp, jam on croissants or you can use it in the cranberry Bakewell Tart which also features in Feast

Label I made for my jam

Head over to Maison Cupcake to enter the contest yourself!

I'm still trying to decide what to make for this months blog event. Wish I had spotted this recipe as I have loads of fresh cranberries that need using up! Love the label too, you are so creative!

Very clever use of the ingredients! Sounds delish and your label is super!

These look wonderful, I think you could earn some serious money at a Christmas fair with a table of these next year.

Thanks so much for taking part in Forever Nigella!
