    1. Combine cranberries, caster sugar, demerara sugar, water, orange zest, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, allspice and pepper in a large pot over medium heat. Simmer, stirring frequently, until sugar dissolves and cranberries pop, 10 to 12 minutes.
    2. Blend cranberry jam into desired consistency using an immersion blender.
    3. Pour jam into a glass jar; cool until thickened and set, about 1 hour. Seal jar and refrigerate.

    Cook's Note:

    Force jam through a fine sieve after blending if you prefer to discard the skins.

    Super easy and amazing flavor. I used 1/4 tsp of nutmeg instead of ginger and added a pinch of spanish saffron. It’s a wonderful holiday jam.  -  22 Dec 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
