Fresh Cranberry Orange Relish


Hands down the best, easiest cranberry sauce for the holidays. Your Turkey “Gobbler” sandwich will never be the same! While we recommend it be made the night before, we often mix the relish an hour before our traditional roast chicken or turkey meal. Even guests who usually avoid cranberry sauce like the addition of bright citrus flavor profiles. If you’re a guest for dinner this holiday season, offer to bring the cranberry sauce and a bottle of wine. We guarantee compliments and thanks.

2 organic oranges, unpeeled, quartered and seeded

1 large odrganic Granny Smith apple, quartered and seeded

1 1/2 cups granulated sugar


1.  Pulse the fruit in a food processor until all the pieces are the same size, slightly smaller than grains of rice.

This will keep for several days, but can also be put in smaller containers, frozen, and thawed as needed.

  1. My mom made that stuff in an old fashioned food grinder — the kind that clamped onto the edge of the countertop. Never thought of using a food processor, but sounds like a great idea!

  2. Cranberry relish has been a family favorite for years. My parents made it with a meat grinder! There are so many recipes that are naturally GF, it is just a matter of finding them. Your blog is great and I have passed it along to others.
