Grape And Spiced Cran-Apple Jam Recipe – Grape And Apple Conserve Recipe – How To Make Cran-Apple Grape Conserve

Total Time: 120 mins


  • 6 whole cloves
  • 6 whole allspice berries
  • 8 cups seedless red grapes
  • 6 cups sugar
  • 4 medium tart apples, peeled and chopped (about 4 cups)
  • 4 cups coarsely chopped fresh cranberries
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice plus enough water to equal 1 cup
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 medium tart apple, peeled and shredded (about 1 cup)


  1. Make a spice bag by placing cloves and allspice berries on a double thickness of cheesecloth. Gather corners of cloth to enclose seasonings; tie securely with string.
  2. In a stockpot, combine next 6 ingredients. Add spice bag. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, until mixture begins to thicken, about 45 minutes. Add shredded apple; simmer until thickened, 35-45 minutes longer (mixture will thicken more after cooling). Discard spice bag.
  3. Carefully ladle hot mixture into 10 hot sterilized half-pint jars, leaving 1/4-in. headspace. Remove air bubbles and adjust headspace, if necessary, by adding hot mixture. Wipe rims. Center lids on jars; screw on bands until fingertip tight.
  4. In batches, place jars into canner with simmering water, ensuring that they are completely covered with water. Bring to a boil; process for 5 minutes. Remove jars and cool.
