I'm convinced that cranberries are just as good a fruit as an apple because of the health benefits. And if you are really getting creative you could probably do an apple and cranberry salsa. Oh wow... I have to work on that.
2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries, thawed
1 small jalapeno seeded and deveined (reduce or increase based on your spice preference)
2 green onions
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1/3 cup honey
1 tablespoon orange zest
Juice of half an orange
Juice of half a lime
1/2 teaspoon of salt
Now for the directions... put everything in a food processor or chopper and pulse until your salsa is chopped to your desired fineness. It is literally that easy. And I'm betting it will be delicious on a turkey sandwich after Thanksgiving. Oh I need to try that.
Now, I know I have a friend here would can not have the citrus from the orange and lime juice. Here is the question: can you have pomegranate juice? Apple juice? Mango juice?
If so these might be viable alternatives. Some people have suggested a vineager like basalmic and sumac but I don't know how tasty that would be?
As for the cranberries which would also present a problem, I do wonder again about pomegranate. It is supposed to be very low in citric acid but it still might present a problem.
But for those of you who can eat it without issue... you can also can it. I bet it would make an excellent gift later.
What are you grateful for today?
