Maga's Citrus Cranberry Relish

Julie Madawi


I can't tell you how long I've been making this citrusy cranberry relish; it's one of those dishes that the family expects to see on the table every holiday.

I have found that fresh orange juice and orange zest really gives it a great burst of flavor. You may also use bottled orange juice instead of the fresh orange juice if desired.
