Cranberry-Orange Relish

"This is another recipe for Cranberry-Orange Relish. It was one my grandmother and then my mother made. Now I make it. Guess what? You can make several batches at once and then freeze it. I make it once a year when the cranberries are out and I have it all year in the freezer. It is so easy."

  • Put the cranberries and oranges (rind and pulp) in the food processor, but you can use a food grinder.
  • Put into a large bowl and add sugar.
  • Mix well.
  • When the sugar is dissolved (a hour or so), you can pack it containers to freeze.

    Just like my Mom's ---simple--sweet and tart. Delicious. Thanks for posting, Mimi.

    This is the one my grandmother and mother made too. I still use a food grinder like grandma did. Great tip on freezing. I usually freeze the fresh berries and pull them out later in the year to make relish but will now make this and freeze it as you suggested. Thanks for posting Mimi in Maine!
