These are the little Christmas goodies I'm giving to the project leaders and staff of the Taste and Spit today. They just turned out so cute, I can't stand it! I found these little jars at Hobby Lobby, and filled them with - - - Cranberry Salsa! Julia, our Children's Director at church, gave me this recipe last year, and it's a sure winner. Serve this over a block of cream cheese with some really great wheat crackers, and you've got a unique appetizer everyone will enjoy. The gorgeous red is an asset to your table, too.
Julia's Cranberry Salsa
1 bag fresh cranberries, washed
2 jalapenos, seeded (or just one, if you're a wimp!)
1 bunch green onions, chopped in a large chop
1/4 Cup cilantro (opt)
3/4 Cup sugar
1 Tbsp oil
2 Tbsp lime juice
Chop first 4 ingredients in food processor. (yea, I finally get to take it out of the back of the cabinet!) Add remaining ingredients. Chill overnight. Drain, and top a block of cream cheese. Serve with crackers. Makes enough for 3 blocks of cream cheese.
I made cute little recipe cards to put on these jars for my friends at work. They are great! Hope you like the salsa.
