Open the top cover of the bread machine and lift the handle of the bread pan vertically, pulling upward to remove the pan from the machine. Place the bread pan on your work surface. Make sure the pan is clean and both kneading paddles are in place.
Place the cranberries in a large bowl and mash them roughly with a fork. You can also quickly puree the cranberries in a blender if you want a smoother jam.
Pour the mashed cranberries into the bread pan and add the remaining ingredients as well.
Put the bread pan back in the bread machine, pressing it down so that it clicks into place. Close the lid of the bread machine.
Plug the bread machine into an outlet and press the power button to turn the machine on.
Use the menu button to select program #9 for the jam cycle.
Press the start button to begin the jam making cycle.
Once the cranberry sauce is done, the countdown timer on the front of the machine will read 0:00 and the machine will beep, indicating your sauce is done. Open the machine at this time and use a pot holder to lift the pan out of the machine.
Pour the sauce into jars and let it cool completely before putting lids on the jars. Note that the cranberry sauce will thicken as it cools and thicken even more in the fridge.
Store in the fridge until you are ready to use.
