8 oz organic cranberries rinsed and picked over

1/2 cup organic sugar

1 t organic cumin

1/2 t organic red pepper flakes (or less to taste)


  • In a medium sauce pan set over medium-low heat, sauté garlic, onion and ginger for 2-3 minutes or until soft and translucent.
  • Add mustard seeds and continue cooking 2 minutes or until fragrant.
  • Stir in remaining ingredients.  Bring to a boil.   Then reduce to medium-low.  Stirring occasionally to keep from burning and sticking to the pan.
