Make Ahead Cranberry Relish


The Holiday Season is approaching fast. This year I have vowed to have a relaxing time. I am going to prepare as many dishes as I can ahead of time so I can spend more time with my family and friends. This is the first of several recipes I intend to share with you. I am making this today for the holidays.

Cranberry Relish

4 medium oranges seeded
2 pounds of cranberries
4 medium unpeeled apples, cored
4 cups sugar

Take the yellow peel from the oranges, trim and discard the white part. Put orange pulp and yellow peel, cranberries and apples through a food chopper. Add sugar and mix well. For a more orangey taste you can omit the apples, but we love apples and they add a crunch to the relish.
Cover and refrigerate. Serve when chilled.
OR pour into glass jars, leaving 1/2 inch head space. Seal and freeze.
Makes 4 pints. Take jar/s out of freezer into refrigerator the morning of your Holiday Dinner to thaw.
[This is also great on top of cheesecake]
