Cranberry Apple Preserves

This preserve is equally at home on the breakfast table or with your afternoon scones as it is on your Thanksgiving dinner table. It can also be made with pears, or a combination of apples and pears. For the black tea, Darjeeling, Ceylon and Keemun are excellent choices, but any black tea should give you a very good result. This recipe can be doubled or tripled easily, so make plenty to use and to share. Packed into an attractive jar it makes a lovely little gift when visiting friends during the holiday season.

  1. Add all ingredients except the lime and ginger to a heavy pan. Bring to a boil over high heat and turn down to medium. Simmer, skimming the foam after about 5 minutes. Let simmer until the cranberries have burst and the apples or pears are tender, roughly 10 to 15 minutes. Add limejuice, zest and grated ginger. Simmer until thickened and remove from heat. Let cool. Process in a canner, or store covered in the refrigerator.
