Spicy Cranberry Relish

Thanksgiving is just around the corner!   I know it's really not good to try a new recipe when your family is craving all the traditional dishes, but this relish is worth a try.  You can cut the recipe in half, which makes about 2 cups.   

Spicy Cranberry Relish

3 to 4 jalapeno pepper, finely chopped (or to taste)
8 cups cranberries
2 limes, zested and juiced
2 oranges, zested and juiced
1-1/2 cup sugar
1 cup water
Salt and fresh ground black pepper

Put all of the ingredients in a sauce pot; bring to a boil over medium heat.
Reduce the heat and simmer until desired consistency, about 30-40 minutes.

I made a batch of stuffing (I really couldn't wait), got some nice, fresh deli turkey and had my leftover turkey sandwich fix!

  1. I love the idea of this -- adding jalapeno to cranberries. The mix of spicy and sweet is so appealing to me. But, I have to admit, probably not with the rest of the folks at Thanksgiving time. That's how we manage to have two of everything -- the new and the old.

  2. Sounds great with the jalapenos! I have a leftover bag of cranberries in the freezer I want to do something with:@) Happy Weekend Patti!

  3. Dear Patti, I love a "kick" in my cranberries. Have a great weekend. Blessings dear. Catherine

  4. I just bought a jar of cranberry sauce with jalapeno in it from Trader Joe's. Should have waited ti I saw your recipe, Patti!
