Recipe: Cranberry- Citrus Relish

It seems that this time of the year, we’re constantly asked for simple recipes so people can enjoy their parties and families. One of my favorite recipes for cranberries is this simple relish that freezes well and is loved by the most ardent hater of this zesty little fruit!

2 cups of fresh, washed cranberries

the zest of 1 large Orange

the zest of 1 large lemon

2 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder

1/2 cup of sugar

1/8 cup dry, crisp Sauvignon Blanc

1 dash of cayenne pepper

1 dash of salt

In a food processor, coarsely chop the cranberries, add the lemon zest, orange zest, sugar, cocoa, cayenne, and salt. stir together well and add the juice of the lemon and orange and mix well. refrigerate for 1 hour and serve.

If you need a nice syrup over french toast, or another breakfast item, add more juice and boil into a simple syrup!

Pairs well with Sauvignon Blanc, Fatesca, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Mencia Wines!
