This is our favorite relish recipe, and like many others, our family has made this for years. One variation we have enjoyed: add 1/2 cup pecans or walnuts to the food processor for texture and a splash of orange liquor for a bit of zip.

Wonderful, and so easy with a food processor! I made two modifications. First, I had very small clementine oranges on hand, so I used two. They were nice because the skin is thin, so almost no white bitter stuff. I used the whole peels. Second, we have fresh, raw honey, so instead of one cup of sugar, I used approximately 1/3 cup sugar and about 1/4 cup of honey to taste. I love the floral notes that good, fresh honey adds! It was sweet enough because honey is sweeter than sugar, and clementines are very sweet oranges. I did not add apple.

I have always made cranberry sauce from scratch, but this was even better. This will be our new Thanksgiving tradition! Even my 8 year old loves it.

GREAT recipe. Simple. Delish. I recommend adding an extra apple - for a total of two. And a few drops of ORANGE Young Living essential oil pumps up the orange flavor.
