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. 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 recipe for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner. He uses the traditional method of grinding with an old hand-crank grinder. 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 you do not 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.
