Our family Thanksgiving dinner would not be complete without my son-in-law’s cranberry relish recipe that grinds in oranges with the cranberries. This flavor combination of sweet and tartness is a refreshing balance to compliment your Thanksgiving meal. No cooking is involved in making this delightful and delicious relish. Not to mention it is one of our favorite leftover ingredients for a turkey sandwich!
Ben Weller, my son-in-law, makes this wonderful Cranberry Relish for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner every year. When young, he used the traditional method of grinding with an old hand-crank grinder, but now he uses a food processor. It is amazing how delicious this cranberry relish is as the sugar balances the tartness of the raw cranberries. His mother, Joan Weller, told me (in confidence) that have her son make this relish was her way of keeping her son busy and out of the way when she was fixing the holiday dinner.
So, forget those canned cranberry sauces and make this easy-to-make Cranberry Relish for your family and friends.
