i’ve always been a fan of canned cranberries and whenever i see homemade at the holiday table i’m quietly disappointed. these taste just like the ridged cranberry goodness that i love and they’re super easy to make!

another version of this recipe uses rub #2, so if you have that at home, make sure to check it out on the flavor website. 

“canned” cranberry gelatin Canned Cranberries

1 lb fresh cranberries
1 ½ cups sugar
½ cup apple cider
2 ½ tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 ½ tsp gelatin powder
¼ tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp nutmeg
½ tsp salt

4 six ounce tin cans, thoroughly cleaned, small tomato paste cans are great

in a small pot add cranberries, sugar, cider vinegar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. allow to cook over medium-low heat until cranberries have burst and mix is fully combined, about 10 minutes.

in a small bowl add apple cider and gelatin. allow to sit for 5 minutes.

while cranberry mix is hot but not scalding add apple cider/gelatin mixture. add to cans and fill all the way to the rim. allow to set in refrigerator for at least 5 hours.

once set open the bottom of the can and push gelatin out onto a plate.
