Yeah! I got the Em's Delicious Cranberry Salsa Recipe!

Now, even though this is Em's special recipe, I did find it out on the Internet as well with several people claiming it their own. (I have always wondered how people can call a recipe their own, :)!) But here is a photo from What's Cooking and the recipe is the one I got from Em. This is an absolutely addicting salsa that will keep you snacking until it is gone!

Em's Delicious Cranberry Salsa!

1 12 oz bag of fresh cranberries (rinsed)
4 green onions minced (about 1/2 cup)
2 small jalapeño peppers, seeded and minced (about 2 Tbsp)
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, minced
2 Tbsp ginger, finely grated
2 Tbsp lemon juice

Put cranberries in food processor until finely chopped, but not mushy. Transfer to a bowl. Stir in all other ingredients, cover and refrigerate for 4 hours to allow flavors to develop. The flavor mellows and sweetens over time. Will keep in refrigerator for a week.

(Em always serves this over cream cheese with a "Ritz" type cracker, the brand that has sesame or wheat varieties, not "Ritz" versions, and I highly recommend going that way too! If only I could remember the brand name!)

Also, I was talking to my husband and thinking about these two recipes and decided that maybe you will not fawn over them like I do. I just love vinegar, hence why I love the POM Salsa and I just love ginger, hence why I love this Cranberry Salsa. Which ever tendency you have or don't have, I hope you will at least try it for fun, you will not be disappointed in the presentation for sure!

For those in MN, this will be coming your way tonight! It is absolutely heavenly!

As for the car... the epoxy is drying exactly right in the right place and everything! Yeah!! The extra wire I used is really doing its job too! Yeah!! I'll keep you posted! The plan is to re-install it at 2 today! How exciting!
