1 vanilla bean, halved lengthwise
1 (12-oz) bag fresh or unthawed frozen cranberries (3 1/2 cups)
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
1/2 cup water
Special equipment: a food mill fitted with fine disk
Scrape vanilla seeds from pod into a 2-quart heavy saucepan. Add pod and
remaining ingredients and
bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until thick, about 20
minutes (jam will continue to thicken as it cools).
Purée jam in food mill set over a bowl, discarding skins and pod. Cool, stirring occasionally.
Makes about 2 cups.
