Cranberry-Orange Jam



  • 5 navel oranges, scrubbed

  • 2 cups cranberries

  • 1 cup honey

  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar

  • 1 teaspoon pectin


  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Prepare an ice-water bath; set aside. Pierce oranges all over with the tines of a fork. Place in boiling water for 10 seconds. Transfer to ice-water bath and let cool. Return oranges to boiling water for 10 more seconds; transfer to ice-water bath to cool. Repeat boiling and cooling process two more times.

  2. Transfer oranges to freezer until firm, about 15 minutes. Using a mandolin, slice 1/8-inch thick and transfer to a wide shallow saucepan along with 3 cups water, cranberries, and honey; bring to a simmer over medium-low heat.
