Fresh Cranberry Orange Relish

Relish adds a fresh tangy flavor to lots of different dishes.  This fresh cranberry orange relish recipe is one of my families favorites!  My mom started making it years ago for Thanksgiving.  I never liked cranberry sauce until this recipe surfaced at our Thanksgiving table.  The regular canned jelly cranberry sauce is full of sugar, has a less than appealing texture, and just doesn’t add much.   This cranberry relish is fresh, simple to make, and delicious on turkey, sandwiches, and lots of other dishes!

Begin by zesting 2 oranges.  The smell of fresh orange zest reminds me being on vacation somewhere tropical.  Yum.

Next you will peel and section the two oranges you just zested.  To a food processor add 4 cups of fresh cranberries, along with the orange sections.  (This makes enough to feed a crowd by the way)  The original recipe calls for 2 cups of sugar.  I decreased it to 3/4 cup and it turned out just great.  You will also add 1/4 cup of your favorite chopped nuts.  I used almonds in this batch.  Pulse everything until it is chopped fine, and you are done!

Not only does this taste delicious, but it smells like heaven.  It is tangy, sweet and citrus-y and you will love this with any holiday meal!

pleassant to read all at one place.

Lacey says:

You don’t cook the cranberries at all? “Fresh cranberry” means “raw cranberry”?

Natalie Monson says:

Yep. No cooking – just raw cranberries.

I love the orange zest and that you reduced the sugar! I love fresh cranberries this time of year. 🙂

Helen says:

How long does this keep? Was thinking of putting in a sterilised jar and giving as Xmas gift.

Natalie Monson says:

I would use it within 3 days of making it. It starts to break down after that and loses the texture appeal.
