Christmas Jam

                     Tis the season, to be busy as a bee on sugar! But it's a good busy, keeping my hands happy making treasures, baking goodies for the family and my annual Christmas jam can't be forgotten! And right after Thanksgiving is the time to stock up on fresh cranberries that go on sale and can be popped in the freezer till jam time! Dressed up for gift giving, this makes a easy and sweet gift for anyone on your list!
