Cranberry-Jalapeno Relish

Taken from the Backwoods Home magazine. I recently made this as per directions. However, after using it I decided to cook it and add a tad more sugar, we liked it better this way. So, I have added the sugar amount to include the addition of more sugar. I would also encourage anyone who makes this to use a lime that does not have alot of pith. I used a regular lime this time, but would use a key lime next time. All in all I would make this again, however, it does not replace plain ol jellied cranberry sauce according to my daughter.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wash cranberries, lime and jalapenos.
  2. Deseed and remove pith of the lime.
  3. Grind the cranberries, lime, and jalapenos, I used a food processor.
  4. Add the sugar and mix well.
  5. Refrigerate the mixture for at least three hours so flavors can meld.
  6. Or as we liked it simmered for 1/2 an hour or so (until desired thickness) and cooled.

I made this over the Christmas holidays and loved it! I had planned to share some with friends, but couldn't talk myself into parting with any! Maybe next time, and there will definitely be a next time! Thanks for a great sweet and a little spicy recipe!
