SunGold Kiwi and Cranberry Relish
1 cup granulated sugar
2 cups water
zest of 1 orange
1 pc ginger thinly sliced
12 oz fresh cranberry
1 cup diced SunGold Kiwi (about 4 kiwi)
1/2 of a fresh jalapeño minced
1 tablespoon minced cilantro
Combine the sugar, water, orange zest and ginger in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to simmer and cook 2 minutes. Add the cranberries to the simmering liquid and cook until they all burst, but have not completely broken down, 4-5 minutes. Strain the liquid and reserve for another use (like cocktails!). Discard the ginger and orange.
Transfer the cranberries to a bowl and cool to room temperature. Fold in the diced kiwi, jalapeño and cilantro. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve with any grilled or roasted meat.
