Step 1

In a non-reactive large saucepan, combine all ingredients but the basil. Simmer over medium heat, stirring often, until cranberries begin to pop – about 10 to 15 minutes Continue to cook over low heat, another 15 minutes. Stir in the chopped basil. At this point you can use an immersion blender to break up the cranberries some or leave them “whole” style.

For canning: Pour, while hot, into prepared hot jars, leaving ¼-inch head space. Adjust caps. Process 10 minutes in boiling water bath. Let cool overnight before checking seals.

For refrigeration: Transfer to Mason jars and let them come to room temperature before covering and refrigerating.

Makes about three pints.
