This is a great recipe I found in the San Antonio Express News. So far we've tried it with turkey and fish, and it was great! I also think it would go nicely with beef or pork. Very simple and quick to make. I'm thinking about adding a little orange zest next time. Cooking time is actually refrigeration time.

  1. Remove seed and stems from jalapenos.
  2. Chop jalapenos and cranberries finely.
  3. Add sugar.
  4. Refrigerate for 2 days before using. NOTE: The first time I made this, I only refrigerated it for 1 day and it was really good. However, it was even better after 2 days.

Just a wonderful relish and complement to chicken or beef. It was really hard to find cranberries--out of season in April--at least where I live. I searched many stores looking for fresh or even frozen berries--Finally, found frozen ones and used them. I would suggest to other chefs to make this in the fall near Thanksgiving and Christmas when cranberries are plentiful and inexpensive. Very good results!
