Festive Cranberry Orange Cream Cheese Dip

So, as you can see, I have been missing in action for the last few months. Doesn't mean I haven't been cooking, but it means that life has been crazy!

But, here I am, ready to post this fantastic, very festive appetizer. It's festive because of the cranberries so would be a great addition to an Easter, Thanksgiving or Christmas menu, but really, you could serve it all year round :)

It's so easy to make and it just gets better with age, so make it ahead of time and take the stress out of entertaining! The flavours are so fresh, but the ginger, jalepeno, cilantro and citrus juices just give this appetizer extra depth. Oh, and served alongside a block of cream cheese? To die for!

Festive Cranberry Orange Cream Cheese Dip
Great as a shared appetizer
1/4 Green Onions
1/4 cup Cilantro
1 Jalepeno, seeded
3 cups Fresh Cranberries
1/3 cup Sugar
2 tbsp Grated Ginger
Juice of half a Lemon
Juice of half a Small Orange

Combine green onions, cilantro and jalapeno in food processor and process until finely chopped. Add the cranberries and process until all cranberries are chopped but not mushy. Stir in the sugar, grated ginger, and lemon and orange juices. Can serve right away or place in fridge for a few hours, overnight, or even for a day or two and let the flavours come together.

Serve alongside a block of cream cheese and crackers.
