Savory Cranberry Jam

Savory Cranberry Jam is so easy to make - and it makes a beautiful side dish or appetizer that tastes better than any pre-packaged version.

To serve as a crostini appetizer, slice a baguette in 1/3 inch pieces and toast until golden brown on both sides. Spread the toasted baguette with goat cheese (or your other favorite cheese), then top with the jam.
