  • Bring boiling-water canner, half-full with water, to simmer. Wash jars and screw bands in hot, soapy water; rinse with warm water. Pour boiling water over flat lids in saucepan off the heat. Let stand in hot water until ready to use. Drain well before filling.
  • Place cranberries and water in large saucepan. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 10 minutes. Pour mixture into 6- or 8-quart saucepot. Stir in walnuts.
  • Stir sugar into prepared fruit in saucepot. Add butter to reduce foaming, if desired. Bring mixture to full rolling boil (a boil that doesn't stop bubbling when stirred) on high heat, stirring constantly.
  • Stir in pectin quickly. Return to full rolling boil and boil exactly 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim off any foam with metal spoon.
  • Ladle quickly into prepared jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of tops. Wipe jar rims and threads. Cover with two-piece lids. Screw bands tightly. Place jars on elevated rack in canner. Lower rack into canner. Water must cover jars by 1 to 2 inches; add boiling water if needed. Cover; bring water to gentle boil. Process 10 minutes. Remove jars and place upright on a towel to cool completely. After jars cool, check seals by pressing middle of lid with finger. (If lid springs back, lid is not sealed and refrigeration is necessary.)

    I have used this recipe three times and get rave reviews from family and friends. It is one of the favorites of all my jams, however after the first time, I have used more walnuts than is called for in the recipe.

    This recipe can become a GREAT 5 star jam by the following substitutions: 1. Substitute orange juice for the water - and add a little orange peel 2. Toast your walnuts in the oven at 350 for 7-9 minutes before you chop and add them to the cranberries - this brings the flavor to a new level!

    We love this recipe, and make it every fall. We have given jars out as gifts, and everyone asks for more. It tastes like candy. This recipe wasn't in the last Certo box we bought, and I was delighted to find it here. Thanks.
