Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
Yield: Enough for ten servings of turkey


  • 12oz (350g) bag fresh cranberries
  • Juice of one orange
  • 200g (1c) granulated sugar
  • 50g (½c) walnuts, roughly chopped
  • Strips of zest of half a lime
  • 1 stick cinnamon
  • A few thin slices fresh ginger
  • Pinch of salt to taste


Empty cranberries into a sufficient saucepan, reserving one handful. Combine remaining ingredients. Cook over low flame, stirring frequently till sugar dissolves: about 10 minutes. Increase flame to medium and cook until most of the cranberries burst: about 10 more minutes. Reduce flame to low and stir in reserved cranberries. Remove lime, cinnamon and ginger. Serve warm, or serve completely chilled.
