I was on the lookout to make a new cranberry sauce this Thanksgiving. I've made my Cranberry Sauce with Grand Marnier and my Cranberry Sauce with Whiskey but was hoping to make something a little different this year. Maybe without Alcohol. So here's a Simple Orange Cranberry Relish recipe for you to try.
This Orange Cranberry Relish is super easy to make and doesn't require any stovetop time like my 2 other cranberry sauce recipes.
Basically 3 types of fruit with a little sugar and you are done. It does need time to rest in the refrigerator though so make sure you give yourself enough time.
You can either chop the fruit by hand or use a food processor. Personally, I prefer to use a food processor as it's much quicker and easier to get the proper consistency. But if you like practicing your knife skills, this recipe will give you a workout!
As you would expect, this cranberry relish pairs nicely with Turkey and is definitely something you can offer at Thanksgiving dinner.
I also enjoy this cranberry relish on turkey sandwiches. It has a better consistency than cranberry sauce when using it on sandwiches in my opinion.
