How to Make Spring Hill Ranch's Cranberry Sauce and Salsa

Step-by-Step

  • 1In a medium saucepan over medium high heat, combine the water and sugar. Bring it to a boil, being sure all the sugar dissolves. Add the cranberries and return the pan to a boil. (You might begin hearing the berries begin to "pop".)
    Reduce the heat slightly and simmer for 10 minutes without stirring. Pour the sauce into a bowl and allow it to cool. Cover and refrigerate it until it's time to serve.
  • 2To make the sauce into salsa: Once cooled, add the jalapeƱos, cilantro, cumin, green onions, cinnamon and lime juice and mix lightly. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours to allow the flavors to fester, stirring before serving. Serve chilled or at room temperature.
