Sometime about mid October the local grocery stores around here start carrying fresh cranberries and oh my there are so many outstanding recipes that come from this tart berry. . This Five Minute Festive Cranberry Jalapeno Salsa is simply amazing. Somehow the spicy flavor of the jalapenos complements the cranberries just perfectly. It is not too spicy nor bitter from the cranberries. Some kind of crazy chemistry combines for perfect harmony. I could put this on grilled chicken and grilled fish. I could top baked brie with this or serve this as an accompaniment for grilled beef or pork tenderloin.
