A holiday side dish recipe your family will relish. Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanssa or just Sunday dinner, this cranberry orange relish is a 3 ingredientall natural holiday side dish recipe with no preservatives.


1 pkg. (12 oz.) Ocean Spray cranberries
1 medium orange
3/4-1 c. sugar

Slice unpeeled orange into eighths. Remove seeds. Place 1/2 cranberries and 1/2 orange in a food processor or hand grinder. Process til the mixture is evenly chopped. Transfer to a bowl and repeat with remaining ingredients. Add sugar and mix well. Store in refrigerator or freeze.                       
(makes 2 1/2 cups)                                                                                                                                                                                                                         

Note: Jackie called the show and said she likes to cook her relish. You’ll need to zest the rind off the orange and reserve the zest. Add 1/4 c. walnuts and zest (use the 1 c. sugar). Do not process the ingredients. Bring to the boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook, stirring constantly, til thickened and shiny (about 5 minutes). Cool and refrigerate.
