    Cranberry Salsa is pretty popular in Texas at this time of year -- pretty good if there's enough sugar to combat the tartness of the berries.

    Neat served over a simple poached fish, grilled chicken, grilled sweet potatoes...

    At the salsa bar yesterday...

    greek (kalamata, feta, cukes with the standard ingredients)
    watermelon -- seems to be a popular recurring item...
    roasted corn
    pineapple
    various roasted salsas
    pico de gallo
    tomatillo
    3 levels of "standard" salsas
    cilantro pesto
    southwest pesto
    ancho pesto
    standard pesto

    Actually, Lynne the first thing I thought of when I read this recipe was how well it would go with a nice piece of white fish or a grilled turkey breast.

    Sounds pretty tart, but good. I'd like to try it, although I'd probably add a little sugar to the mix just to give the "sour" taste buds some relief. It probably would be very good on a brined and smoked turkey, too.

    This is a recipe I got off the radio in 1994. It's from Madhur Jaffrey, and was on Vertamae Grovesnor's show Seasonings. It goes well with turkey, chicken, or pork. It's especially good as a spread on post-Thanksgiving sandwiches, with or without mayonnaise mixed in:

    Garlicky Cranberry Chutney

    1 cube fresh ginger (about 1-inch), peeled and julienned
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    1/2 cup apple cider vinegar or red wine vinegar
    4 tablespoons sugar
    1/8 teaspoon cayenne, ground
    1 can Jellied Cranberry Sauce *

    Combine ginger, garlic, vinegar, sugar, and cayenne in a non-reactive pot. Simmer 15 minutes. Add cranberry sauce and simmer for an additional 10 minutes. Pour into a clean jar and store in refrigerator. This keeps very well.

    * I always use Whole Berry cranberry sauce, and sometimes add extra dried cranberries. Everyone I've served it to loves it!:lips:
