Fresh Cranberry Condiments

Fresh Cranberry Condiments

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I will share a recipe for a condiment made with fresh cranberries. You can use this Thanksgiving Condiments in a number of different dishes, and they will all taste great. I use this to make a salsa, a creamy dip, a fruity drink, and even shots.

I love all kinds of berries, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, mulberries, so when I saw fresh cranberries in the grocery store, I bought two big bags. Only later did I find that fresh Cranberries are hard, sour and a bit bitter in taste. To compensate for the sharp, acidic flavor, I tried many experiments, with the two big bags I brought. This recipe is one of the successful ones.

In this recipe, fresh cranberries are chopped and mixed with salt, sugar, and chopped green chilies, and left to rest for a few hours. This smoothens the berries’ tartness and the salt, sugar, and spice blend together to give a unique taste. After a couple of hours, this mixture starts to leave juice. I strain the juice, which is a spicy sweet and sour syrup and store it for later use. The condiment is the strained cranberries, I add this in any salsa made with any fruits, to add a spicy sweet and sour taste. You can use this condiment to make creamy dips to enjoy with crackers. This is good in marinates as well.
