Apparently, Christmas jam is a thing. As a chef and a food blogger, I had no clue. This is a fine example of the food world today, chances are, the idea (recipe) is out there long before you came up with the recipe, and the only hope is you make it better. Jam is something I love and have blogged about before. My recipes for strawberry-orange, blackberry, apricot, and fig spreads have all been very popular. It’s not surprising really, most people are jam fans. But note, that all of my recipes are quick jams (or spreads). The reason is, there are some things in the cooking world even I don’t do, that’s canning. I have a board on Pinterest that’s devoted to canning recipes and tips, but canning is (blame my impatience) not my thing.
So this lovely Christmas jam is another quick jam I am in love with and it’s perfect for Christmas morning. This jam is a combination of apples, strawberries, and cranberries creating a lovely well-balanced sweet-tart jam flavor. More of a winter jam (hence the name) that goes perfectly on top of buttermilk waffles, on hearty, rich multigrain bread, or swirled into a bowl of overnight oats for a quick breakfast. So canning aside, if you love jam, give this Christmas quick jam a shot and check breakfast off that long to-do list on the big day.
