cranberry orange relish

Today I’m posting another great recipe for your Thanksgiving table: cranberry orange relish. I usually make a cranberry sauce that has grated orange rind, but this time I’m preparing something a little different. This time I’m adding a little cinnamon and honey to enhance the flavors. There is no cooking involved, just process and let the sauce sit; how easy is that! Prepare this relish the day before and just take it out when it’s time to eat.

**Helpful hint and common mistakes

Don’t you just love it when the recipe only has one step? This is a great recipe because it’s easy to prepare and it tastes fabulous! Simply process all the ingredients and let it sit. You can also serve the relish immediately but just like many sauces, it tastes better as it sits.

Serve the cranberry orange relish with your turkey and use it as a condiment for your leftover turkey sandwich! If you’re still not convinced, give this ultimate cranberry sauce with apples and pears a try!
