Cranberry Salsa......

 
With cranberry season in full swing, New Englander's will use these tart gems in just about any recipe they can. This is not your ordinary salsa and you are absolutely right, the color is a little different, but the flavor is spot on.  This was a cinch to make and a great success at my mother's birthday party this weekend. Here is the recipe.
  • 12 ounces fresh cranberries
  • 1 bunch cilantro
  • 1 bunch scallions
  • 2 jalapenos pepper
  • juice of two limes
  • 2 tbsp. Grand Marnier
  • 1/2 cup sugar (I used cranberry honey produced by the bees at my local bog)
Throw it all in the food processor, blend and let sit over night in the fridge so that the flavor will deepen.  Serve with tortilla chips.

    It looks so yummy. Thanks for your comment,about my chickens feet, yes, I did massage them and if you want to run over here I would do the same for you too, :)
    She is much better today. She was walking around instead of standing on one foot with the other tucked up in whats left of her feathers.
    My poor chickens are so naked.
    I hope you have a nice week.
    Lovely cranberry recipes. I am dying for some muffins now too.

  23. Yummy. In this recipe you have used my favorite herbs, cilantro with one of my favorite fruits, cranberry. How funny, though, I had to look up Grand Mariner to see what it was. However, oranges are dropping off the tree in the back yard. I'll use some juice and a bit of rind. I think that would be ok. TU for the recipe. I do hope you are having nice walks with Bella.

  24. No kidding. With tortilla chips?

    I'll bet it would be good on cream cheese like hot pepper jelly.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  28. Wow! Your salsa looks delicious!
    We went to Maine in October (my first time!) and I fell in love with the shoreline and the woodsy smell of yet another glorious state in America! I know Maine is more of a blueberry place than a cranberry place, right? I sure ate a lot of lobster!
    I wish you a beautiful Thanksgiving!
