There's something a bit decadent about adding champagne to a recipe for something as simple as cranberry jam. But this recipe from Edible DIY: Simple, Giftable Recipes to Savor and Share proves it's a wonderful idea. Ginger adds a welcome touch of heat and champagne, elegance. The result? Sweet, tart, and zesty jam that goes lovely with cheese or in sandwiches.

Tips: This probably goes without saying, but don't worry about the quality of the champagne you're using. As long as it's not terrible, you'll be fine. And if you've got leftover New Year's champagne, this is the time to use it.

Tweaks: 4 1/2 cups of sugar is a lot. Add one cup at a time, and taste afterwards. You might find yourself stopping at 2 or 3.
