12 Days of Holiday Crafts, Day 8: Pickled Cranberries

 (Maggie Bullock)
(Maggie Bullock)

I’ve made these for a couple of years now and I love them. They’re also a VERY popular gift around this time of year.

Tart, sweet, with a little cinnamon, they taste like Christmas. And they’re really easy and fast to make. I found the recipe on Serious Eats, and am sharing the link. I didn’t make any changes this year and really like the spice blend Marisa McClellan developed for this recipe.

The color of the berries in the jars is also very Christmas-like.

We use Pickled Cranberries as a side at Thanksgiving and on turkey sandwiches, but my favorite use is on salads. I like adding them to a simple green salad with crumbled feta, spinach, toasted pecans, and a vinaigrette made with the juice from the jar. Delicious.
