Cranberry Mustard ( makes 2 ¾ Cups)

½ red onion, diced
2 teaspoons olive oil
2 Cups fresh cranberries
½ Cup apple cider vinegar
½ Cup water
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon cracked pepper
⅓ Cup sugar
4 Tablespoons whole mustard seeds
1 Tablespoon ground mustard
½ teaspoon ground allspice


In a medium sized heavy bottom pot, sauté the onion over medium high heat until just tender, about 5 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients, stirring to combine, bring to a simmer, cover, and turn heat to low for 10 minutes. Turn heat off, leave covered and let stand for one hour. Check consistency. If you like a looser mustard, add a few tablespoons of water to get it to desired consistency.
Preserve like you would jam, or refrigerate.

Cheater version: Mix 2 parts cranberry sauce with 1 part whole grain mustard.
