    Cranberry Relish Recipe

    Cranberry Relish Recipe

    Cranberries are one of my favorite parts of Thanksgiving. I always whipped up a yummy batch of orange cranberry sauce for the big meal. This year I am adding a super simple cranberry relish to my Thanksgiving day menu.


    • 12 ounces of cranberries
    • 15 ounces of mandarin oranges
    • 1 cup of white sugar


    1. Wash the cranberries and rinse the oranges.
    2. Use a food processor to chop the cranberries and oranges into small chunks. Do not blend the fruit mixture.
    3. Pour the blended cranberry-orange mixture into a medium bowl.
    4. Add the sugar to the cranberry-orange mixture. Stir thoroughly.
    5. Refrigerate the cranberry relish in a covered container for at least an hour.
    6. Serve cold.
    7. Refrigerate any uneaten cranberry relish.
