  • 1 (12-ounce) package fresh or frozen (thawed) cranberries
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons apple-cider vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • Pinch of ground cloves
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup dried sour cherries
  • 2 Ruby Red grapefruits, pith and peel removed, separated into segments


  1. In a medium saucepan, combine cranberries, sugar, vinegar, cardamom, cloves, and salt. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until cranberries just begin to burst and soften, about 5 minutes. Turn off heat; stir in cherries, and transfer mixture to a bowl. Let cool completely, then gently mix in grapefruit. Refrigerate in an airtight container, up to 5 days.
