tiny! pinch sea salt
2 teaspoons organic orange zest
1 teaspoon organic lime zest

1/4 cup minced crystallized ginger + extra for garnish

What you do: 

1. To a 2-quart saucepan, add berries, sugar, and liquid. Slowly bring to a boil.
2. Add super tiny pinch of salt and boil gently (bubbles just breaking the surface) until liquid is incorporated and berries are bursting, about 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.
3. Add orange and lime zest, then walnuts and minced ginger. Mix well to incorporate.
4. Transfer to serving bowl. Sprinkle garnish walnuts and ginger over the top.

The “Never Give Up Philippines” Project exists to help the victims of Typhoon Haiyan. It exists to show the people of the Philippines that the world is watching and supporting, and will help raise money through one of the biggest Music and Social Media movements the world has ever worked towards.


I had some friends over for a chosen family vegan potluck, and they all absolutely loved this.  The consistency wasn't very solid, but it was still kind of jelly-like.  Maybe boiling it or chilling it a little longer may have helped it solidify.  The flavor was wonderful.

I added 1/4 c. of frozen cherries and left out the walnuts.  Thanks for this recipe!
