Cranberry Relish with Grapefruit and Mint


This cranberry sauce was delicious!  Recipe comes from the November 2008 issue of Bon Appetit.


  • 2 large pink grapefruits
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1 c. water
  • 2 1/2 c. cranberries
  • 2 TBSP mint (I didn’t add this because the store didn’t have any)


  1. Remove the zest from one grapefruit in 2 inch strips; then cut the strips so they are 2 inches by 1/8 inch.
  2. Juice both grapefruits.
  3. In a medium saucepan, stir sugar and water over medium heat until sugar dissolves.  Add grapefruit peel; bring to a boil.  Reduce heat; simmer until peel is soft, about 15 minutes.
  4. Add grapefruit juice and cranberries; bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer until berries start to burst, about 10 to 15 minutes.  Transfer to a bowl and stir in mint.
