Sorry, this salsa didn't suit me at all! I was very disappointed w/ the outcome of this. As the recipe directed, I prepared everything in advance, allowing time to sit overnight so that I could serve it w/ chicken tacos the next day. I was a bit worried about how this would turn out b/c it tasted VERY bitter (I "tested" tiny spoonfuls as I was making it), despite adding extra honey to compensate. Something about the jalapeno seemed out of place to me as well. Hoping that the flavors would "meld" overnight, I took another "test" sample b4 making dinner, and, at that point, decided to toss it all (my fiance didn't try this; he HATES cranberries so therefore topped his tacos w/ "traditional" condiments). I 1/2'd the yield amount, so I have plenty of cranberries, cilantro and honey left to use in other recipes (as well as the booze I already had in my pantry - for drinking!), but the $'s spent on jalapenos and limes were a total waste. I think this recipe needs sugar to sweeten it, NOT honey. If you think about it, the tartness of traditional cranberry sauce is balanced w/ sugar, so why mess w/ what already works (?). Oh, and I did freeze my cranberries 1st, and then allowed them to thaw b4 processing (which I don't think made that much of a difference, IMHO). Too bad! This would have been a nice fall salsa to add to my recipe box. It seems that most people enjoyed your recipe, Bluestocking, but unfortunately, it wasn't to our liking :(
