absolutely wonderful, a nice change from the canned. I substituted the almonds with pecans (chopper) and added some dried chopped apricots, and raisins. and an apple it turned out just as tasty as the original recipe, with just a bit of difference.

I've never done fresh cranberry relish, but this was easy and turned out great! Not too tart, not too sweet. It may also be good by adding a chopped orange after cooking. Took this to the family Christmas dinner and everyone loved it. Thanks!

This recipe is very good. A nice change from my regular recipe. I reduced the recipe quantities by 1/4 since cranberry bags are now 12 oz, not 16. I think, for my personal tastes, I might reduce the sugar even a little more. I also added 2 T. amaretto after the mixture had cooled. Yum! Thank you for posting this recipe.
