  • 12 oz cranberries
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onions
  • 2 jalapeños minced
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves minced
  • 2 tablespoons finely grated fresh ginger
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup sugar


  • Rinse, drain, and pick over cranberries, (discarding all that are soft or bruised). Place cranberries in a food processor or blender; pulse until finely chopped but not mushy.
  • Place crushed cranberries in a bowl; mix together with green onions, jalapeños, cilantro leaves, and ginger. Pour lemon juice and sugar over and stir together.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate and allow flavors to develop. It will be a bit tart begin with, but as it is allowed to sit it will develop even more flavor.
  • Can be served as a plain salsa, but is amazing served over cream cheese with crackers.
