Jingle Jam


Texans come together for the holidays to enjoy friends, family, and good food. It’s easy to make the holiday table merry and bright with Jingle Jam, while feeling good about it.

Made from cranberries, oranges, and jalapenos – all cancer-fighting ingredients – Jingle Jam is sure to please everyone on gift lists and around holiday tables with its versatile and delicious variety of uses.

  • 6 cups fresh or frozen cranberries, rinsed and picked over
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 cup water
  • ¼ cup jalapenos, minced with seeds removed
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest


Combine all ingredients in a large stockpot. Bring to a rolling boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally until thickened. While jam is on the stove, prepare half-pint jars according to manufacturer’s directions.

When jam is ready, ladle into prepared jars, allowing a 1/8-inch headspace before sealing. Follow manufacturer’s directions for processing in a hot water bath for five minutes.

Remove carefully and do not disturb jars for 12 to 24 hours.

Yield: 5 half pint jars
