My mother, Lucille, made this relish for as long as I can remember. She used the old metal food grinder that tightened to a table with a vise until she got her first food processor. Does that bring back any old memories?

How to Make Lucille's Cranberry Relish


  1. This is best done the day before it is needed. It is great as a leftover served on a turkey sandwich with lettuce.
  2. Wash and throw out soft cranberries. Core the apple, and remove any seeds from the orange. Grind all of these in a food processor till fine, but not pureed. Mix all ingredients well and chill in a covered container.
  3. Stir the mixture every hour till needed. Adjust the sweetness to your taste. Enjoy!
