Actually Cranberry-Apple-Orange Relish and it comes from Jackie on our topica list.
3 Naval Oranges
1 C Brown Sugar, firmly packed
1 Pound fresh or frozen cranberries (I have not found them
in 1 pound bags so I just use 2 bags and double this recipe)
1 Green Apple, peeled and chopped fine.
1/8th teaspoon Allspice
Grate enough rind from the oranges to make 1 teaspoon
1 C of orange juice squeezed from the oranges.
Grate the rind from your oranges and reserve. Squeeze
juice from oranges to make one cup juice. Put juice and
brown sugar into a pan
and bring to a boil, stirring.
Add cranberries (rinsed), and the Allspice. Lower heat
and simmer for 5 minutes or until the berries start to pop.
Remove from heat
and add the chopped apples and the grated orange rind.
While it is still hot, I
mash the berries with an old fashioned hand potato masher.
This year I used frozen berries, and I substituted OJ from
a carton and it came out
just fine. Now, you could leave the berries whole, or mash
them like I do, or, I
guess you could put them in a food processor. When you mash
them, they mix better
with the sugar mixture, and the relish is thicker and
This recipe doubles really well.
Thanks Jackie for the recipe. If you would
