Cranberry Breakfast Spread

For a festive holiday breakfast, serve a wedge of Brie with a spoonful of cranberry spread, slices of kiwi fruit and a French baguette. It is easy and delicious.


2/3 cup cranberry juice


1 3/4 cups cranberries

1 teaspoon lemon zest

1/2 lemon, peeled and cut into sections

1/2 cup dried cranberries

1/8 teaspoon ground allspice

Honey Tips

Honey Flavors and Colors

Honey has different flavors and colors, depending on the location and kinds of flowers the bees visit. Climatic conditions of the area also influence its flavor and color.


Combine cranberry juice and honey in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring. Add remaining ingredients. Return to a boil and simmer until cranberries begin to pop and mixture thickens, about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat, cool and then refrigerate. Spread will thicken more when chilled.
