  • 1 package (12 ounces) fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1 cup dried cherries
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cups water


  1. In a large saucepan, combine cranberries (no need to thaw if frozen), cherries, sugar, and water.

  2. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer until most berries have burst and liquid is syrupy, 20 to 25 minutes. Transfer to a bowl. Cover, pressing plastic wrap directly on surface of relish; refrigerate.

Cook's Notes

The relish can be made up to two weeks ahead and refrigerated in a covered container; bring to room temperature before serving.
