Highbush Cranberry Jelly with Certo


This recipe uses Certo

NOTE: Highbush cranberries are a fruit of the honeysuckle, and completely different fruit than the lowbush or commercial cranberry.

Highbush cranberries grow on a shrub with pointed leaves whereas cranberries grow on a vine with oval leaves.

Highbush cranberries have a single seed, which needs to be removed.

If you have ever smelled something reminiscent of stinky socks on a stroll through the bush, you are likely very close to a good patch of highbush cranberries.

The seeded pulp of the highbush cranberry can be used interchangeably with the pulp of the regular cranberry in any recipe.
