  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 cups whole fresh cranberries
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried lemon peel or fresh lemon zest


  • Heat the sugar and water in a 3-quart or larger Dutch oven (or other heavy-bottomed pot) over medium-high heat until boiling.
  • Add the cranberries, frozen blueberries, cinnamon, and lemon peel (or zest). Allow the mixture to return to a boil, then turn the heat down to medium-low and simmer for 15-30 minutes, until cranberries are burst and softened.
  • Divide into pint-sized mason jars for storage, leaving a half inch of air space in the top of each jar. Allow to cool on the counter top before refrigerating or freezing.
