Welcome to Mum&sons

My two eldest boys challenged me to start a cooking blog with simple recipes that we can cook together - and my youngest one has now joined in. I am hoping they pick up some cooking and photograph skills... or that at least they learn to design and run a blog.


A must for Christmas.

You need:

- 1.5 kg cranberries
- 300 ml red wine
- 200 ml water
-sugar (around 150 gr)

Boil the cranberries, wine and water and let them simmer for 45 minutes. Put the mixture over a muslin cloth and let it drip during the whole night (do not squeeze the muslin cloth). The following morning measure 155 gr of granulated sugar for each 300 ml of the red juice. if you get more or less juice then let your kids calculate the right proportion. Put the juice and sugar in a pan over medium heat and let it boil for 20 minutes (or if you have a food thermometer, until it reaches jam temperature) Pour into sterilised jars.
