Cranberry-Jalapeño Appetizer

Serves 6 to 8

1 bag fresh cranberries (remove the soft ones, wash and coarsely chop remainder in food processor)
4 green (spring) onions, chopped (about a 1/2 cup (115g))
2 small jalapeño peppers (or 1 large), seeded and chopped (about 2 tablespoons)
1/2 cup (115g) sugar
1/4 cup (small bunch) fresh cilantro (coriander), minced
2 tablespoons fresh ginger, finely chopped or grated
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
8 ounces (225 g) of cream cheese (try Tofutti)

1. Mix the first seven ingredients together in a large bowl. Store in the fridge in an airtight container for at least four hours to allow flavors to mellow.

2. Scoop cream cheese onto a serving plate, and pour cranberry mixture on top. Serve with crackers.
