Tart cranberry flavor blends nicely with mustard and horseradish in this out-of-the-ordinary cracker spread from field editor Maria Hattrup of The Dalles, Oregon. It’s quick to fix, too.
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup water
1 package (12 ounces) fresh or frozen cranberries
1 to 3 tablespoons prepared horseradish
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
In a large saucepan, bring sugars and water to a boil over medium heat. Stir in cranberries; return to a boil. Cook for 10 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally. Cool.
Stir in horseradish and mustard. Transfer to a large bowl; refrigerate until chilled. Just before serving, spread cream cheese over crackers; top with cranberry mixture. Yield: 2-1/2 cups.
