Fresh Cranberry Relish – Jeannette Leduc

This is a great recipe for Cranberry Relish that I tried at Christmas.

I did find the orange peel a little overpowering so try it with just half of the orange peel (organic) and taste it to see if you want to add more of the peel. I started with just ½ cup of organic sugar then added only another 2 tablespoons when I tasted it an hour later as I like food less sweet. You could try it with Stevia instead of sugar.


Cranberry Relish Recipe

Preparation time: 15 minutes.


• 2 cups washed raw cranberries
• 2 skinned and cored tart apples
• 1 large, whole (peel ON) seedless orange, cut into sections
• 1 to 2 cups granulated sugar (depending on how sweet you would like your relish to be)

1 Set up the grinder with a medium-sized blade on the edge of a table with a large roasting pan or bowl to catch the mix as it grinds. These old fashioned grinders tend to leak some of the juice down the grinder base, so you may want to set up an additional pan on the floor under the grinder to catch the drips. If you don’t have an old-fashioned grinder you can use a grinder attachment on a KitchenAid mixer, you can chop by hand (though that will take a lot of work), or you can chop in a food processor (be very careful not to over-pulse, or you’ll end up with mush).

  1. Too much sugar. It voids the nutrition in the fruits.

  2. Ann, it is why I suggested using Stevia instead of sugar. I use sugar in very small amounts if at all but I will use it is for very occasional special recipes like this relish.
