Mediterranean Apricot Jalapeño Relish

Some people think that ALL PEPPERS are too spicy.  Many Peppers are too hot, but not these.  Try this & see if you like it…

I love APRICOTS-especially Mediterranean Dried Apricots.  They’re not all dry & hard like most dried apricots~ they’re moist & supple.

The other night I was craving something sweet.  I was rummaging through the pantry only to discover we’d eaten all of the dark chocolate.  That’s when I found the delicious treats.  I diced a handful of Mediterranean Apricots and added them to about 4 ounces of Ojai Organic Jalapeño Jelly & it was fantastic! Try this with turkey, chicken, pork, PB&J’s, or with cream cheese on crackers.

1/2 c. Mediterranean Apricots, diced
4-6 ounces Ojai Organic Jalapeño Jelly

Try this delicious cranberry sauce that takes about 5 minutes to prepare;

Jalapeño Cranberry Sauce

1 bag fresh cranberries, washed & drained
Approximately 2 cups fresh orange or tangerine juice

Place the cranberries, fresh juice & cinnamon sticks in pan over medium heat.

Stirring, heat only until the cranberries ‘pop‘, then set aside to cool slightly, drain off juice.
Set aside cinnamon sticks for the serving dish.

Add the cranberry mixture to a pretty serving bowl, add the Ojai Organic Jalapeño Jelly.
Stir, add back cinnamon sticks & serve~
