1 bag (12 oz.) fresh or thawed frozen cranberries
2 Meyer lemons (1/2 lb. total), ends trimmed
1 cup sugar, or to taste


1. Discard any soft or decayed cranberries. Cut lemons into 1-in. chunks and discard seeds.

2. In a food processor, pulse lemon chunks until coarsely chopped. Add cranberries and pulse until berries are barely chopped.

3. In a medium saucepan, mix fruit and 1 cup sugar. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring often, until flavors are blended, about 5 minutes.

Make ahead: Cover and chill up to 1 week.
