The subtle spicing adds depth to the dish, and leaves you wondering, "What makes this so much better than the usual cranberry relish?"

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Yes, this spiced cranberry-orange relish will be delicious with your Thanksgiving or Christmas turkey. But, it is for so much more than that. It has a jelly, jam-like texture, so spread it on a bagel or toast. Use it on a charcuterie board with cheese, meat, and crackers. We like the way orange tastes with the cranberries. It's a sweet burst of flavor with a subtle hint of spice.
