Hedgerow Preserves: American Highbush Cranberry & Wild Apples

9.00 13.00

Apples from the Lil To Do hedgerow with foraged American Highbush Cranberries (Viburnum trilobum). These are not true cranberries. They are the fruit of a plant more often noted for its beautiful early summer blooms, but with several fall frosts, the fruit sweetens and the red splays of berries are an arresting sight set against fall foliage and undergrowth dark from several hard frosts. For this preserve, I used a darker honey that comes from late season bee pollinaton/feeding when they are feasting on goldenrod. This makes the jam a complete representation of the late season harvest with all ingredients coming from Addison County where we live and work. 

Sub this preserve for currant jelly in Cumberland Sauce and eat with rich meats or combine it with red wine and caramelized onions to braise veggies or meat.

Ingredients: American highbush cranberry, honey, apple, lemon juice.
