For anyone who'd like a change from the usual cranberry sauce, this recipe may just be what you've been looking for. It's a tangy-sweet relish just brimming with beautiful ruby-red beets, celery, onions and, of course, cranberries.Serve it with roast turkey or roast goose. This relish may be made up to 24 hours before serving. <<Cooking time is refrigeration time.>> The recipe comes from The Canadian Living Christmas Book.

Loved this relish -- a great change from the usual cranberry relish which we throughly enjoyed with a turkey dinner. Skipped the orange peel but otherwise made as directed. Thanks for sharing this keeper!
