Raw Cranberry Relish

Vegan, gluten-free, raw, optional paleo
Prep time: 5 min.
Yield: about 3 cups

This creative, raw-foods recipe is an alternative to cranberry sauce and is packed with layers of flavor. It is quick and easy to prepare and will spice up any holiday meal. If you want to make it paleo, you can substitute the brown sugar for a natural sweetener, like Grade B maple syrup, or brave the tartness and leave sweetener out altogether.

2 bags cranberries

4 tablespoons red onion

1 tablespoon garlic

4 seeded jalapeños

1 teaspoon salt

2 bunches cilantro or parsley

1 cup lime juice

2 cups brown sugar

1) Chop cranberries in processor.

2) Chop onion, garlic, peppers, salt, and cilantro.

3) Mix in bowl.

4) Add lime and sugar.
