Cranberry Jelly and A New Zesty Store

by zesty on October 20, 2009 · 12 comments

Welcome to Tuesday!  I hope you had a great start to your week.  Today I want to share with you some exciting news and a super simple recipe for a fall preserve. Before we get started, I want to say thank you for all the nice comments in yesterday’s post regarding the marathon.

On to the Food

If you are like me, then you love cranberry sauce, jelly or for that matter cranberry anything.  One of the main reasons why I love Turkey Day is because of the cranberry.  For today’s recipe it doesn’t get any easier than Cranberry Jelly.  Three ingredients, one pot, a sieve and some jars. That’s it.

This yummy side treat takes all of 20 minutes to make so next time cranberries are on sale give this a try.

Ingredients

  • 4 Cups Cranberries
  • 2 Cups Water
  • 2 Cups Sugar

Method

  1. Boil Cranberries in water until berries are soft.
  2. Put through a sieve.
  3. Add sugar and return to heat.
  4. Let boil until thick (about 10 minutes).
  5. Pour into Jars and let cool.
  6. ENJOY!!

Zesty Tip: Be sure to sterilize your jars before using them.  You can re-use your jars  but I suggest purchasing new lids especially if you are using mason jars to ensure a tight seal.

On with the News

Zesty Opens a New Store

About 6 weeks ago, I was contacted by the folks at OpenSky Project.  They had shown interest in myself and zestycook.com to be a part of the Open Sky Project as a store keeper.   The company’s concept is “expert-powered e-commerce, connecting consumers to experts and the products they love and use.”

The ultimate idea is a space where blog readers can go to learn more about an item and purchase it on the same page, if they so choose. Open Sky has all the customer service you’d find at any other online store – everything is guaranteed.   Their goal and mission is to connect consumers to experts and the products they love and use.

So with that said, I would like to officially announce the opening of the zestycook store!  In the upcoming days, I will be adding more products, pictures and videos but for now browse around and tell me what you think.

Have a great Tuesday and contact me if you have an questions or concerns.

Take care

zesty

I kid you not when I say the thing I look forward to the most on Thanksgiving (foodwise, at least) is the cranberry sauce. I’m the one who makes it, and the only one who eats it! Everyone else would be happy with the can shaped log. They don’t know what they’re missing!

We are huge cranberry lovers in this house. I fact, my hubby reigns from New Bedford, where cranberry bogs rule the lamdscape. Congrats on the marathon and the new store!
