Delicious Cranberry Salsa

When we were in Texas this past December, I remember at Jackie & Ken's party we had some cranberry salsa. Or was it relish? Or chutney? I am not sure of the proper name, but it was absolutely delicious and out of this world.

I am not big on talking about how good something tastes; I do love baking and cooking/experimenting in the kitchen, but I mainly like to do it for others, not so much for myself.

This recipe was so good. I emailed Jackie this morning requesting it. I had completely forgotten about it until just a few moments ago. I remember I was a little afraid to try it at first-I thought it looked a little odd, and it seemed weird to be eating some sort of cranberry mixture with Tostitos. I'm weird when it comes to relishes/chutneys. But everyone else was eating it and raving over how great it was, so I bravely tried it.

I was really impressed with it. So that brings me back to right now-I would love to get her recipe and make it, and even can/jar it and give it as gifts, or take it to get-togethers. It is that good.

I found a recipe online: but I am sure it is a little different than Jackie's. I may try to make that one though to see if it tastes the same as her's does.

More to come!


The link to the recipe above is different than Jackie's.

Jackie emailed me her recipe. She was more than happy to share it, and she sent along another delicious recipe too for some corn and bean salsa/dip-YUM. Gosh I sure do love Texas!

Her recipe reminds me so much of TX, maybe because the first time I had the salsa was there in TX. There is just something about this salsa..

Since cranberries are not in season right now, I had to improvise, since I really wanted the salsa. I know Jackie's tasted a lot better back in December, because it was with the fresh in-season cranberries. I can hardly wait for November! Fresh Market always has the best ones. ;)

So I used canned ocean spray cranberries, and then I added the rest of the ingredients her recipe calls for and mixed it all tastes the best with Wheat Thins, and it should be very cold. I put some in little mason jars and took one to Stamp Club. I gave one to Delaine (my demonstrator), and I now I have 2 extras.

Everyone at Stamp Club tried it and loved it. I am going to make it again soon and take it to something next week I am going to. Delish.


  1. I've never tried Cranberry salsa but Strawberry salsa is really good so I could see myself trying Cranberry salsa. :)
