So for those of you who feel the same way, this is just one more fun (and nourishing) thing you can do to get your "fall fix."
Quick and Easy Cranberry Jelly
12 ounces of fresh cranberries (I got a bag of Ocean Spray cranberries for $1.68)
1/2 to 1 cup of sugar, to taste
1/2 cup water
Rinse cranberries well and dump into a deep pot with water and sugar.
Bring to a boil and let simmer, covered, until cranberries are soft.
Use potato masher or hand blender to crush the fruit and stir into a thick, syrupy sauce.
Pour/Strain into a container and chill for 1-2 hours.
Enjoy! We love it spread on top of buttered toast or in peanut butter sandwiches.
And don't be afraid to get a little messy :)
