Cranberry-Orange Jalapeño Relish



Cranberry-Orange Jalapeño Relish

12-ounce bag fresh or frozen cranberries

1 large unpeeled orange, quartered, seeds removed

1/4 unpeeled lemon, seeds removed, cut in half

2 to 3 jalapeño peppers, seeds and stems removed (to taste)

1 cup sugar (about)

1/2 bunch cilantro, leaves only, chopped

Place about half the cranberries, the orange and lemon pieces and the jalapenos in a food processor and pulse until finely and uniformly chopped —do not let mixture puree. Remove to a glass or other non-metal bowl. Chop the remaining cranberries about 4 to 5 times until coarsely chopped. Add the sugar and stir thoroughly. Let stand 5 minutes and then taste to be sure no additional sugar is needed. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes and up to a week. Just before serving, stir in the cilantro. Makes about 3 cups, 12 servings.

    Got olives? Try tapenade at home

    Olive tapenade, an earthy, salty paste of olives, capers, anchovies, garlic and other flavorings, is easy to find jarred in specialty shops. But when you whip up a batch yourself at home, the flavors pop in a surprising way that makes you never want to buy it in a jar again.
