Linda’s tart, flavorful, spicy and a tad sweetened cranberry salsa

l-12oz bag of fresh whole cranberries

1/8 cup Raw honey

5 drops Stevia

1 tsp Xylitol

3- drops Wild Orange Doterra Essential Oil

1-Serrano hot Pepper

( Or other pepper of your choice, but if you leave this out it is more like the original Chutney)

DIRECTIONS

1. Combine orange, apples, and cranberries into a food processor.

Pulse until ingredients are finely chopped.

2. Pour ingredients into large bowl. Add sweeteners

3. Add 3 drops Wild Orange essential oil. Stir to combine.

4. Put salsa into airtight container and let it rest in the fridge for 1-4 hours.

Note:My orange and pepper were organic and home grown .

I made this recipe for Thanksgiving 2015= ,RAVE reviews ! This was in place of traditional Cranberry sauce ( canned or home made) served with Turkey and the Vegetarians loved it too !

FYI- I started with the Cranberry Chutney Recipe from Doterra essential oils , and as always played with my food, less sugar , less sweet, more healthy!

Version #2 – spicier

Skip the orange but add 5 drops Doterra Wild Orange oil not 3

Add 2 or more hot peppers not one

WONDERFUL DESERT IDEAS:

Serve as parfait layered with Easy Coconut Maple  Whipped Cream or NO sugar Coconut Ice Cream…( will post my recipes ) and home made granola ( I will post my recipe for that as well ).

You may already know about me:

I like to play with my food . I do not always follow directions so well to the T. I do not believe that our taste buds or bodies were meant to be bombarded by sugar or heavy sweets of any kind. Therefore I am always working on making recipes that suit that way of life. Especially when someone has Diabetes , or any inflammatory health issues and wants natural healthy eating!
