If you can find any fresh cranberries in your local market, rather than stringing them with popcorn for your Christmas tree, I hope you are able to make this recipe!
My friend Susan at From Beyond My Kitchen Window turned me on to this recipe and I've been making this relish for years, and everyone really enjoys it! This relish is the perfect match for turkey, chicken or pork dinners, It's also great on leftover turkey or chicken sandwiches too.
Sam Hoffer at My Carolina Kitchen also uses her cranberry relishes as an appetizer on a crostini with blue or gorgonzola cheese - how delicious! Sam also has three amazing cranberry sauce recipes you should check out too!
3 cups cranberries (fresh or frozen)
1 medium orange, cut into eights (ends, & seeds removed)
1 cup sugar (or eqivalent artificial sweetener)
Slice unpeeled orange into eighths and remove any seeds. Place half of the cranberries and half of the orange in food processor. Pulse until evenly chopped. Tranfer to a bowl and repeat with the other half of orange and cranberries. Stir in sugar to taste and store in refrigerator of freezer.
Oh, if you find any fresh cranberries, be sure to pick up an extra bag or two for your freezer. The cranberry season is a short one, and cranberries keep nicely in the freezer for up to two years!
P.S. Isn't the color beautiful!
