Mom's Thanksgiving Cranberry Relish

Robyn Bruce


This is one of my mom's age old recipes. It was always on our holiday table. When it's ready to eat, you just put a little on the side of your plate and eat it the way it is.

No-Cook or Other


1 pkg
whole fresh cranberries (i think they come in 16 oz. packages)
whole fresh lemon
whole fresh orange
2 c

Directions Step-By-Step

Using a grinder or a food processor, (not a blender) grind the cranberries and alternate with chunks of orange and lemon, including the rinds.

Add sugar to the mixture. Mix well.

This is best if made about 2 days ahead of time and kept refrigerated. (Gives the flavors time to blend well!)

**Mom says that a grinder works best, but you can use a food processor (just pulse it) if you take care not to let it turn to mush. The idea is to have a coarse "relish" consistency.

This recipe is not only delicious, but really looks pretty.
