Cranberry Crackers

Many years ago, I loved attending local cooking classes.  This was one of the recipes that my family actually enjoyed. My dad just couldn't stop eating it.

Cranberry Crackers

1 cup finely chopped fresh cranberries
2 green onions, thinly sliced
1 tsp seeded and minced jalapeno pepper
2 Tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
1-1/2 tsp. fresh grated ginger
2 Tablespoons sugar
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1-1/2 tsp. orange juice
2 Tablespoons finely chopped walnuts
Salt water crackers or whole wheat crackers

Stir together first 6 ingredients; chill 2 to 3 hours.

Stir together cream cheese and orange juice; stir in walnuts.

Spread on crackers and top with cranberry mixture.

Serve immediately.

Makes 16 appetizers.
