This dried cranberry thyme dip is sweet, sour, salty and herby all at the same time and makes a great appetizer that is very easy to put together.
I love cranberries; they taste delicious and have such a beautiful color. Apparently they are also very healthy, which is nice, although that is not something I’m usually very concerned with, as you probably have noticed if you’ve been following this blog for a while.
In this dip, dried cranberries add both the sweet and the sour flavor components and round out everything very nicely. The dip is easy to make and great to bring to parties, etc.
How to make it:
Start by grinding up dehydrated toasted onion and dried thyme in a mortar with a pestle. (If you’re using fresh thyme, grind only the onion and chop the fresh thyme very finely). Next, whisk the onion and thyme together with whipped cream cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream and minced fresh garlic. Add in the chopped, dried cranberries and then season the dip with salt.
I recommend you serve the dip with toasted baguette or crackers of your choice.
