a new take on jam

i'm going to try this this weekend - i'll post pics if it's a keeper.

D.I.Y. Cranberry Jam - about 1 cup of jam
12 ounces of cranberries (1 bag)
1 1/4 cups sugar
Peel of 1 orange
1 cinnamon stick
3/4 cup water

Run the cranberries through a food processor until they are finely shredded. If you like a chunky jam, leave them whole or process them less. Put the cranberries and the rest of the ingredients in a 2-quart pan. Let sit for about 10 minutes, then bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring frequently. Turn the heat to low and let the jam simmer for about 25 minutes, or until it hits a temperature of 220ºF. Remove from the heat and let cool, then put in the refrigerator.
