Ben Weller, my son-in-law, makes this wonderful family recipe for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner. He uses the
traditional method of grinding with an old hand-crank grinder. His mother, Joan Weller, told me (in confidence) that you don't really need to use a food grinder
(you can use a food processor). It was her way of keeping her son busy and out of the way when she was fixing the holiday dinner.

Cranberry Relish Recipe:
Yields: 8 to 10 servings

2 oranges, unpeeled and sliced into 8 pieces
1 (2-pound) package fresh
1 cup granulated sugar
2 to 3 tablespoons Grand Marnier or Triple Sec
Feed the oranges and cranberries through a meat grinder (use small grate). NOTE: If you are careful, you can use your food processor,
but do not over grind.
In a medium bowl, combine ground oranges, ground cranberries, sugar, and Grand Marnier or Triple Sec. Sprinkle a little extra sugar over the top.
Cover and refrigerator for at least 1 day (the longer you refrigerate, the better the taste).
