Step 1

Cook 1 diced red onion in 1 tablespoon canola oil in a saucepan over high heat until soft. Stir in 1 grated peeled 2-inch piece of ginger and 1 diced serrano chile; cook 30 seconds.

Add 1 cup water and 1/2 cup sugar; cook until the sugar dissolves.

Add half a 12 ounce bag cranberries; cook until the berries pop and the sauce thickens, about 10 minutes. Add the rest of the cranberries; cook 1 minute.
