Ingredients

  • 1 bag (12 ounces) fresh cranberries
  • 1 package (6 ounces) fresh blackberries
  • 1 lime zested
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 1/4 teaspoon peeled and grated ginger root
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup water

Instructions

  • To a medium size pan add water, lime juice, ginger root, and sugar. Stir. Heat the pan on medium heat. 
  • When the water comes to a boil, add the cranberries and stir. Cook until the cranberries begin to pop (about 5 minutes). If the liquid in the pan is boiling too rapidly (and rising), turn down the heat to low. 
  • Turn off the heat and move the pan to an unused burner on the stove, or on a heat resistant surface or hot pad. 
  • Add the blackberries. Gently stir together. Top with lime zest and serve warm or chilled.

Notes

TIP:

When cooking the cranberries; the liquid in the pan is boiling too rapidly (and rising), turn down the heat to low.
