Mom (Carol) used to make Cranberry Relish the old-fashioned way, by grinding raw cranberries and oranges in a meat grinder that attached to the kitchen counter. Then one holiday, she made this quick & easy recipe and no one noticed the difference! This was the Cranberry Relish she made from then on. Orange juice can replace part of the water OR part of the pineapple juice, if you want. We'll just keep the little secret of how easy it is to make this dish to ourselves, right? =^..^=
