Cranberries, buddha's hand

Cranberry and Buddha's Hand Citron Relish
In the fall my Buddha's hand tree begins to ripen. I love to use this with holiday roasts or on sandwiches.

Makes about 2 1/2 cups

1 cup Buddha’s Hand citron cut into ½ -inch dice (include skin and white flesh)
1 cup fresh cranberries
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon star anise, ground
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black peppercorns
1/8 kosher salt

1. Pick over cranberries and discard any that are shriveled and not nice and red. Place in the bowl of a food processor, add Buddha’s Hand citron, sugar, star anise, pepper and salt. Pulse on and off until you have the texture you like. I like mine fairly fine. Place into sterilized jars and refrigerate until needed.
This will keep for several weeks.
