Author: Jackie
Ingredients
Apple Cranberry Jam
  • 9 cups peeled and diced apples (combination of green and red)
  • 3 cups fresh cranberries
  • 6 cups sugar
  • 1 cup apple juice
  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • zest and juice of 2 lemons
Maple Oat Nut Scones
  • 1 cup quick oats
  • 1 2/3 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons cold butter (small pieces)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half plus more for basting
  • 2/3 cup coarsely chopped pecans
Instructions
  1. In a large pot add all of the ingredients.
  2. Cook on high heat stirring occasionally.
  3. Once cranberries begin to pop, reduce heat to medium.
  4. Add the zest and juice of the two lemons.
  5. Continue to cook jam until it begins to thicken and become syrupy, stirring occasionally, about 30 minutes.
  6. While jam is cooking, prepare jars. Using clean jars, place in hot hot water.
  7. Bring water bath to boil (or large pot with dish towel filled up 2/3 of the way with water then cover and bring to boil).
  8. When jam is thick and syrupy (it will thicken considerably when cool), remove jars from hot water.
  9. Carefully ladle hot jam into jars.
  10. Wipe rims, apply lids and rings and submerge in the water bath.
  11. Boil jars for about 10 minutes.
  12. Carefully remove and cool completely.
To make the scones, start by combining all of the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  1. Using a pastry cutter or two knives, cut butter into dry mixture until butter pieces are the sizes of peas.
  2. Stir in maple syrup.
  3. Add half and half and egg and mix with wooden spoon until most of the flour is incorporated.
  4. Gently mix in chopped nuts.
  5. On a lightly floured surface, make a thick 2 inch disk with scone dough and cut into 8 wedges.
  6. Baste wedges with half and half.
  7. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake in a 350 degree preheated oven for about 12 minutes, or until light brown.
  8. Enjoy!
