To remove the lime zest (the thin, colored portion of the peel), use a vegetable peeler to take it off in strips. Try to get just the zest portion, because that’s where all of the flavor is.
2 bags (12 ounces each) fresh or frozen cranberries
4 cups apple juice
3 tablespoons honey
Zest of 1 lime
⅔ cup fresh lime juice (about 5 limes)
1. In a large saucepan, combine the cranberries, apple juice, honey, and lime zest. Bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook until the berries have all popped, about 15 minutes.
2. Strain the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve, pushing on the berries to extract as much liquid as possible.
