Cranberry Orange Relish

Fall is my favorite time of year.  I love the crisp, cool air in the mornings and the warm afternoons.  Of course, my thoughts turn toward Thanksgiving and the menu for this year.  I love cranberries, but as a child, we only had them at Thanksgiving.  There are so many other uses for them.  Check out my Crockpot Cranberry Chicken & Rice.  You can buy bags of cranberries cheaply when they are in season and freeze them for later use.  So, now is a good time to stock up!

This is a quick relish that you can make ahead of time so that it's ready for Thanksgiving or any special meal.

Cranberry Orange Relish
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 4 cups raw cranberries 
  • 2 oranges, quartered and seeded

Put raw cranberries and oranges through food chopper. Add sugar, cinnamon and mix well. Chill in refrigerator a few hours before serving. Makes one quart relish. This relish will keep well in the refrigerator for several weeks.  You could also substitute an apple for one of the oranges.  And, your favorite chopped nuts would be a great addition.
