Julia's notes for this recipe:
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:
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.

I was greatly disappointed when Indian Trails Cranberry Orange Sauce was no longer being made. As long as I can remember this product was available during Thanksgiving and Christmas season. My mother always made the Cranberry Orange with Cherry Gelatin recipe for our holiday dinners. I have to admit this was one of my favorites. It tones down the spicyness of the dressing and calms the saltiness of the ham. I hope you and your family enjoy it as much as I do.

I would love to make this but haven't seen cranberry orange relish in the freezer dept.? Do you know who makes it? what brand name?
user Julia Ferguson judyjellybean - Aug 31, 2011
Carol, Indian Trails Cranberry Sauce used to be in the freezer section of groceries but they no longer make the product. I have included a recipe that can be used for the relish and can be frozen. This post is 2 recipes in one. One is for the relish. The other is for the gelatin recipe. Hence the recipe title:
