Orange and Apple Cranberry Relish


A couple of years ago our oldest son went nuts over cranberry relish. Shocker. In the past my mother-n-law used the cranberry sauce recipe on the back of the Ocean Spray cranberry bag of cranberries. This year I took on the task of cooking and baking an entire Thanksgiving feast. Is it rude to say it was really good? I picked up a bag of cranberries to make the cranberry sauce. Of course the recipe was not on the back. I checked the website and found nothing.

Sometimes things go wrong and sometimes it is for a good purpose we may not understand at the moment. Take for instance this version of Orange and Apple Cranberry Relish. I would have never found it and to be honest we all liked it better than the recipe on the back of the bag of cranberries.

Elise from Simply Recipes uses a grinder. I have rewritten the directions using a food processor. If you do not have a food processor or grinder a blender is ok.

Preparation time: 15 minutes.
2 cups washed raw cranberries
2 skinned and cored tart apples, cut into sections
1 large, whole (peel ON) seedless orange, cut into sections
1 to 2 cups granulated sugar (depending on how sweet you would like your relish to be)

Chop the apples, oranges and cranberries in a food processor use the entire (seedless) orange, peels, pith and all. (Be very careful not to over-pulse, or you’ll end up with mush). Dump into a large bowl.

Mix in the sugar. Let sit at room temperature until sugar dissolves, about 45 minutes. Store in the refrigerator.

Makes about 3 cups.
