apples, cored and diced with peel
I love this recipe. I just use a bag of cranberries (12 oz), one orange, one granny smith apple, and anywhere from 1-2 cups of sugar. I like it sweet cause I don't put it directly on my turkey. Everyone always asks me to make this relish over regular cranberry sauce, year after year.
I am not a fan of uncooked relishes, so I modified this recipe a little. I boiled 1.5 cups of water with sugar to dissolve it, then added the rest of the ingredient. I let it simmer until the apples are soft and then cooled and stored it in the fridge. Very good on turkey and cornbread.
This is a Thanksgiving must! I use half the sugar and it's fine for us, especially if the apples are very sweet.
Excellent! I used half the sugar and put the oranges in the processor after cutting them, but not peeling them. Didn't notice a difference and this made it very easy.
This is just like the recipe my aunt used to make. Thank you for posting. Although it freezes well, this makes a lot of relish. I made half a recipe, which was enough for a large Thanksgiving dinner and (kept in the freezer) a small Christmas meal. I also used only half of the recommended sugar. I prefer relish on the tart side rather than sweet.
Being a diabetic I used sucralose in place of sugar for this recipe. No one knew the difference. It's great with ham or turkey plus it makes a wonderful dessert for me mixed with cottage cheese or sugar free gelatin.
I tried this recipe on Thanksgiving and it was a complete success... I made it again on Christmas and it's now part of my list of favorites. It's like dessert... yum!
This is "THE" family tradition in our home for Thanksgiving. As a child we took turns grinding the cranberries, apples and oranges but the recipe was doubled and we made it a couple days before Thanksgiving. The longer it sets the better it is. Now I still make it with the old hand grinder but with my granddaughter. I want her to keep it in the family!!
