strawberry~cranberry jam :)

here is my recipe for strawberry~cranberry jam! me & the kids picked the strawberries and the cranberries were harvested last fall, from a family friend's cranberry bog...enjoy!

~4 cups freshly picked strawberries, roughly chopped
~1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
~7 cups white sugar
~1 pouch of liquid pectin
~1 tsp of ground cinnamon
~1 tsp vanilla extract
~1 tbsp butter

combine the berries, sugar, cinnamon in a large sauce pan; heat on medium/ medium high; use a potato masher to mash the berries as they cook down; bring to a full rolling boil (a boil that doesnt stop bubbling when stirred);  add the butter and boil for 3-5 minutes (stirring constantly); stir in the pectin and stir constantly for 1 full minute; laddle into prepared jars!
