It's really so simple:
It's also really good on the turkey instead of regular cranberry sauce.
So, where's the danger, you ask?
I made this the night before Thanksgiving. I was so glad that I remembered all of the quantities of everything and I tossed it all in and pureed it. I even threw in some of the jalapeno seeds because some like it hot.
I noticed the limes were kind of big, so after I put in the first one, I tasted it to see if it needed the other one.
Cue the most shocking, tongue-numbing, dreadful taste!
Imagine the tartness of raw cranberries, the sharpness of a lot of lime juice, the heat of a jalapeno and the flavor of the green onions- without the sugar.
I was speechless.
3/4 of a cup a sugar and no more lime juice, and voila, a "different" kind of flavor for Thanksgiving. It's really a neat taste because it's such a wild mix of flavors. You just keep going back for me.
Unless you're me and you've been scarred by the non-sugar version and you have to stay away. Far away.
The lesson we can take from this? NEVER. EVER. Serve something without tasting it.
