P52 Photo Challenge - Food - Week 47

"Food" is the theme for the 47th week of the P52 Photo Challenge. With Thanksgiving a couple of days ago, there was a variety of food that was available at the annual holiday meal at the farm.

I enjoy trying new recipes; and holidays always seem like a good time to have a combination of new recipes with old favorites.

This year, one of the new recipes I tried was Cranberry Salsa that I saw on Have Recipes - Will Cook. I made a similar recipe a few years ago, but like this one more.

The cranberry salsa was served with cream cheese and crackers.

It is served on top of cream cheese and crackers.

Cranberry Salsa


1 12-ounce bag fresh cranberries, rinsed and picked through for soft or bruised fruit.
¼ cup minced green onions
2 small jalapeno peppers, stemmed, seeded and chopped
½ cup granulated sugar
¼ cup chopped cilantro
2 tablespoons finely grated fresh ginger
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 8-ounce packages cream cheese


Place cranberries in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until finely chopped (stop before the cranberries turn mushy.) In a large bowl mix together the cranberries, green onions, jalapeno, sugar, cilantro, ginger and lemon juice. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.

Arrange the cream cheese on a serving platter and cover with the salsa. Serve with crackers.

Mmmm...cranberry salsa sounds good! We've been eating a lot of persimmon salsa around here because they are plentiful...cranberries not so much!
