I have this as part of my Thanksgiving Feast.  Kids can make this part of the meal.  It is good to have everyone make a part of the feast. Share in the responsibilities  of this feast, it makes it more special.  Pot luck is good fun and less work for the host and hostess.

This is a great fast and very healthy relish to use throughout the year.




To make about 5 cups.

  • 1 pound fresh cranberries
  • 2 oranges large, zest and juice
  • 1 1/2- 2 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp crystallized ginger


  1. Wash the cranberries. Cut the oranges into quarters. Then put the cranberries and orange quarters briefly (skins and all, seeds removed) through the food processor, leave chunky. Place in a bowl. Add the orange zest, ginger and sugar and mix well with a wooden spoon. Taste and add more sugar if desired.
  2. Cover and let the relish stand at room temperature for about 24 hours to develop flavor before serving. Relish can be stored for 2 to 3 weeks.

Cranberries are harvested in late autumn, just in time to celebrate the holidays. Whether you prefer to enjoy cranberries in a jam, as a sauce from the can, juiced, dried, or fresh, there’s no denying that cranberries are festive. They’re tart, dark red, and pair really well with a turkey dinner (according to science).
