Cranberry Orange Relish and Cranberry Orange with Cherry Gelatin

Julia Ferguson Recipe

By Julia Ferguson judyjellybean

finished gelatin serves 6 or more

A fruity blend of cranberries, oranges and sugar (a good substitute for the Indian Trails Cranberry Orange Sauce, which is no longer being made)
On the inside wrapper of the Indian Trails Cranberry Orange Sauce was a recipe for Cranberry Orange with Cherry Gelatin. I have included that recipe. It is easy, very fruity, full of flavor and a great compliment to Ham and Sweet Potatoes or Turkey and Dressing.
Note: The Relish recipe makes more than needed for the Gelatin recipe, but that's okay because it can be frozen and there will be enough for the rest of the year.


for the cranberry orange relish:
4 c
whole cranberries
good quality seedless oranges, cut into 16 wedges, (peel and pulp intact)
2 c
for the cranberry orange with cherry gelatin
2 - 3 oz
pkgs, cherry gelatin
2 1/2 c
boiling water
1 c
crushed pineapple, juice and all
10 oz
frozen, cranberry orange relish

Directions Step-By-Step

For the Cranberry Orange Relish:
Put cranberries and oranges in food processor and pulse until finely chopped. (A food grinder can be used instead of the food processor)
Place cranberry orange mixture into large bowl and add sugar. Mix well, and let sit for 1 hr or so, until sugar has disolved.
When sugar is disolved *pack in 10oz quantities to freeze.

*Note: If using to make Cranberry Orange with Cherry Gelatin, you want to drain off most of the juice before packing and freezing.
For the Cranberry Orange with Cherry Gelatin
Disolve gelatin in boiling water. Stir in cranberry orange relish and pineapple. Pour into mold or serving dish. Refrigerate until firm.

Cheryl, No do not cook the cranberries. Rinse them off under running water and pick out the soft and/or bad cranberries. Place cranberries and orange in your food processor and pulse. I would not put more than 2 cups of cranberries and 1 orange in the processor at one time. Thanks for considering my recipe. If you do try it, let me know. Thanks for your comments.

Julia, this sounds delicious! Thank you for sharing, and I would love to try it soon....I have a question, Do I cook the cranberries, at all? I've only made one other recipe for a cranberry sauce and the cranberries were cooked. Just wanted to make sure. Thank you.
