2 fresh jalapeños, seeded and finely chopped
1tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
1/4teaspoon cumin
2 to 3 green onions, sliced
1tablespoon fresh lime juice


  1. Combine water and sugar in a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Add cranberries. Return to a boil; cook 10 minutes without stirring. Pour into a bowl and let cool.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and mix lightly. Refrigerate. Serve chilled or at room temperature.
