Cranberry Meyer Lemon Relish

Cranberry Meyer Lemon Relish

Time: 15 minutes. When we introduced this relish from a reader in Palo Alto, California, Meyer lemons could be found only in backyard gardens. Now that they're everywhere, this recipe is even more useful.

  • Yield: Serves 10 (makes 2 cups)


  • 1 none bag (12 oz.) fresh or thawed frozen cranberries
  • 2 none 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.
