Salsa is a great alternative to ketchup or chili sauce. For a twist this recipe uses cinnamon in the preparation. Combined with the zesty chilies the spice adds a unique flavor.
2 1/2 cups chopped ripe tomatoes
3 shallots chopped
1 red or green pepper diced
1 clove of garlic minced
1/4 cup white vinegar
1 tsp dried crushed chilies
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp paprika
This unusual combination of strawberries and ginger is addictive. Raspberries may be substituted for strawberries if desired.
2 cups sliced strawberries
1 mandarin orange – peeled and sliced
1 lemon – peeled and sliced
2 apples – peeled, cored and sliced
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 1/2 tsp dried ginger
Gently mix ingredients together. Taste. If needed add a little more sugar.
Serve with cottage cheese or on cream cheese.
