Last Minute DIY Christmas Gift

Hello friends, it has been a few weeks.  I have been busy with the new baby, but I will be posting a Great Grocery Project update soon.

In the meantime........are you on a tight budget and looking for a quick last minute DIY Christmas gift?

Then this post is for you!!

Note:  If you are not a canner, (ie. you do not have supplies on home for home preserving) this gift can become pricey pretty quickly.  However, if you have canning supplies on hand....this is the last minute DIY gift for you....*drumroll*


It is so easy to make - easier than jam even!  Just keep in mind that your jars need to sit for 24 you have until about 10am on the 24th of December to whip this up (depending on when you do your Christmas).

Head on over the Bernardin website for this wonderful recipe - I like to substitute 50% of the water with pulp free orange juice.  Trust.  It's delicious!!

This recipe is quick to make and tastes excellent with any poultry.  You will be the hit of any dinner if you bring a long a little jar of this homemade goodness.

MONEY SAVING TIP:  If you live in Ontario, Metro has bags of fresh cranberries on sale this week 2 for $5.00.

PRO TIP: Cranberries can be frozen and used later to make this recipe.  So if you don't have time to do it now - you could always buy $5 or $10 worth of cranberries and stick them in the freezer to make cranberry sauce for an Easter turkey.....just saying.
