  • 130 g fresh cranberries (~ 1 cup)
  • 4 tbsp caster sugar
  • 4 tbsp water


  • Cut each cranberry in half to prevent them from popping as they cook. Add the halved berries to a small saucepan, along with the sugar and water, and bring to a gentle boil. Turn the heat down a little, and cook for around 5-10 minutes, stirring constantly, until the berries have cooked down completely and the mixture has thickened up to produce a rich jam. Leave to cool before serving.
