RECIPE: Framboise Cranberry Relish

Framboise Cranberry Relish

This recipe is modified from Lisa Morrison’s recipe for “Cranbeer-y Relish” that appears in The Christmas Table: Recipes and Crafts to Create Your Own Holiday Tradition by Diane Morgan.

Judging by the cover, the book doesn’t look too vegetarian/vegan friendly, but this Relish recipe is definitely a gem and super easy.  Note: my modification is the addition of blueberries and a pinch of salt.

makes about 2 1/4 cups


  • 12 ounce bottle Lindemans’ Framboise Lambic beer (or other suitable fruity lambic)
  • 10-12 ounce package fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1/4 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1/4 cup finely diced crystallized (candied) ginger
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • pinch of salt


  1. In a deep four-quart saucepan over medium-high heat, bring the beer to a boil.
  2. Add the cranberries, blueberries, ginger, sugar, and salt.  Adjust the heat so the mixture simmers and stir to dissolve the sugar.
  3. Cook, stirring occasionally, until most of the cranberries & blueberries have popped open, about 10-15 minutes. You can assist the fruit by pushing against them and the side of the saucepan with a spoon.
  4. Remove from the heat and cool to room temperature.
  5. Refrigerate in a covered jar or container until ready to serve. The relish can be made up to 10 days in advance.
