Cranberry relish one of my favorite Thanksgiving Day foods, and it’s probably one of the easiest to make! Not everyone cares for cranberries, but I do believe it’s because they just haven’t hit on the right recipe yet. This is a simple cranberry relish recipe, and it’s very adjustable. The most important trick is to have a spoon nearby and adjust the ingredients until it suits your tastes. Here’s my take on my grandma’s recipe:
1 lb. fresh washed cranberries
1 whole orange (unpeeled)
1 whole apple, core removed
Agave or sugar to taste
Chopped walnuts (optional)
Roughly chop the apple and orange into chunks your blender can tolerate. Throw them, the cranberries, some sugar or agave, and maybe 1/4 cup water into your blender. Blend, stopping to push down the fruit if necessary. If it’s too thick, add a little more water. Too sour, add more sweetener. Dump into an attractive bowl and stir in the chopped walnuts if you are adding them.
That’s it! I like to make these the day before to give the flavors a chance to marry, but it’s not necessary. Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving from my family to yours!
