Fresh Cranberry Relish

Cranberry Relish

When I was at the grocery store picking up the cranberries, they had one of those buy two and get them cheap so I ended up walking home with twice as many cranberries as I really needed. It was ok though as there was another thing that I wanted to try with cranberries, a fresh cranberry relish. This relish is pretty simple consisting of fresh cranberries, an apple, an orange and sugar to balance out the tartness of the cranberries. Yes, you read that right; there is a whole orange with the peel and all in there. (The peel gives it a really amazing orange flavour.) This cranberry relish is certainly not a replacement for a cranberry sauce but it is wonderful in its own right. It is so fresh and vibrant and the flavour combination is pretty amazing. I could easily eat a large bowl of this like a salad or it would go well on some vanilla yogurt.

Hi!
I've been reading your blog for a while now. I'm finding it super interesting (I've even bookmarked you for quick access!)

You hit home with this cranberry recipe...this year my new obsession is cranberries, it's been muffins galore! My fave so far...cranberry pancakes! Just drop a wee bit of chopped up cranberry after pouring your batter on the skillet and you're good to go. I think I'm going to stock up my freezer with a few bags for the times of year when we don't have them.

Keep up the awesome posts, I was dissapointed when you went on vacation!

This reminds me of my grandmother's relish. I've taken it to other people's dinners and they think I'm crazy!

Mmm so intriguing. I bet this would be great stirred into a bowl of oatmeal.

Oh! that looks a lot like my cranberry sauce :) Sounds great with the apple, I'm gonna try your version next time!

My mom made a recipe similar to this but added chopped toasted pecans. I make it every Thanksgiving.

Sounds delicious. I went crazy with cranberries on sale too, and discovered that they freeze really well. You can use them in most recipes right from the freezer!

I make something similar, but am going to try the addition of the apple next time. I find that this is a great 'pantry' item as I use it in the filling of cinnamon rolls, mixed with cottage cheese for lunch, as a relish for most things, mixed with fruit salad as a dressing, etc, etc, etc!

My mom makes this recipe. It is soooo de-lish!! I don't care for out-of-the-can cranberry relish (or anything that resembles it) but I can eat my weight in this relish. And that's saying a lot! :)
