This recipe is truly great! The taste is so refreshing. For a slight variation: add 1/2 cup pecans to the food processor. This thickens the relish slightly and adds another layer of flavor.

I had high hopes for this. But that wasn't to be:( There was too much Grand Marnier. I used splenda and I should have used regular sugar. It needed more sugar then written. I am sorry.

WOW!! I can't begin to say how wonderful this was. The liqueur is what made the difference! It is key to refrigerate for several hours so that the flavors meld. Thank you so much for the recipe! I will use it again and again.

Very good sauce. Made one without the liqueur and was just as tasty. It is quite tart, depending of the season you make it. I used a very sweet orange which I believe helped cut the tartness. Definatly a keeper.

WOW! What a change from the mushy canned cranberry sauce I usually serve at Thanksgiving! Sweet, but vibrantly tart. I doubled the recipe & with the leftovers, I added pecan pieces, chopped apples & celery, & it made a great fruit salad with a dollop of mayonnaise on top. I highly recommend this recipe!

Can't believe more people haven't made this delicious recipe. It is wonderful. Tart and sweet at the same time. Have made it for going on two years now and get many raves from others.

I've made this many times for Thanksgiving and everyone loves it! In my opinion, its much better than cranberry jelly! Very easy and it has a very refreshing flavor! I use 1- 12oz. bag of fresh cranberries, about 3/4 cup of white sugar and 1 large navel orange. I didn't use the orange liqueur and it was still delicious! This makes about 2 1/2 cups of relish!

We LOOOOOVE this recipe. It tastes great on a leftover turkey sandwich. Try adding leftover relish (1/2 to 1 cup drained) to your favorite generic muffin recipe - delish!
