Prep time: 10minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes

Makes 3 cups (800g)

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 cinnamon stick
2 star anise
3 cloves
2 tablespoons fennel seeds
2 tablespoons peeled and minced fresh ginger
1 lb (500 g) cranberries, fresh
Grated zest from 5 meyer or regular lemons
Juice of 2 meyer or regular lemons
2 cups (400 g) sugar
6 cups (1.5 liters) water
Pinch of saffron threads
Salt to taste
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar

1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat and cook the cinnamon, star anise, cloves, fennel seeds, ginger, stirring, for about 30 seconds.

2. Add the cranberries, lemon zest, lemon juice, sugar, water, saffron, and salt, and bring to a boil over high heat. Boil, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is slightly thickened, about 15 to 20 minutes.
