Ingredients

  • 24 oz cranberries (can be fresh or frozen), if fresh be sure to rinse and drain

  • 10 – 15 oz of guava marmalade (of the commercial brands I like Ancel because it’s light in color and tastes very natural.) 

  • 1/2 cup of turbinado brown sugar 

  • 1 stick of cinnamon 

  • Pinch of salt 

Directions

  • In a large pot add the cranberries, sugar, 10 oz of marmalade, cinnamon and salt 
  • Cook on medium high until it is vigorously boiling. Drop to low and simmer for 10 -15 minutes. Stir often. 
  • Taste it. If it’s too tart for you, add another 2-5 oz of marmalade. (I don’t like adding sugar at this point because it doesn’t melt as well, whereas the marmalade incorporates nicely)
