2 cups fresh cranberries
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 cups pomegranate arils seeds
1 jalapeño or serrano pepper
1/4 cup finely minced red onion
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
Juice and zest from ½ orange
1/4 cup Jacobsen Co. Raw Alfalfa Honey
Infused Pinot Noir Salt, to taste
Cracked pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with foil.
Cut jalapeno pepper in half and remove seeds. Place on the baking sheet and spread cranberries around, tossing with olive oil on the pan. Roast for 5-7 minutes until the cranberries are soft and beginning to burst, and the pepper begins to shrivel. Set aside to cool.
In a medium bowl, toss pomegranate arils, onion, cilantro, orange juice, zest and honey. Chop the cooled pepper halves and mix. Toss in cranberries, season with pinot noir salt and pepper.
Serve immediately or transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 4 days.
