New Food Invention -- Sour Apple Cranberries

Over the weekend, I was whipping up some fruit salad. In a previous blog entry (that you can read here ), I told you about how I discovered that one can add zing to a fruit salad by dumping in a little sour apple schnapps.

My fruit salad was chiefly yellow and orange fruit. To add a little colour I threw in some dried cranberries and topped the whole thing off with a jigger of Sour Apple schnapps. That's when the eureka moment hit. What would happen if you soaked or pickled some dried cranberry in the sour apple schnapps. I had to try it out.

I got a little pimento jar and jammed it full of dried cranberries. I filled it to the rim with sour apple schnapps, and put it in the fridge. A few hours later I tried one.

The cranberries absorbed the schnapps and it was delicious. The taste and apple and cranberry goes together well. I could see this as a dessert topping, going into fruitcakes, and being whipped into ice cream. I am willing to bet that you will see this new food invention in the marketplace. Apples and cranberries are a natural.
