Cranberry-Jalapeño Relish

11/20/2023 – Mary and sister Susan made this for the first time in advance of Thanksgiving 2023. It was great. It was inspired by the recipe here.


  • 6 oz. bag of dried cranberries
  • ½ cup orange juice. [This was too much. Should have started with maybe half of this and added if needed.]
  • ½ cup diced red onion
  • ½ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced – Did not include this due family that does not like heat.
  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon salt


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine cranberries, orange juice, onion, cilantro, garlic, jalapeño, lime juice, cumin, and salt.
  2. Stir together and chill for 2 hours before serving.
