Cran-Orange Relish

One of my favorite things on the dinner table at Thanksgiving is the cran-orange relish. My grandmother always makes the relish for Thanksgiving, but now we live so far away and it is hard to get back to visit for the holidays. I decided a few years ago, that I would take this yummy favorite on as my tradition here with my family. I make it just a little different than Grandma used to, but tasting it still brings back happy memories from when I was younger. This year, my daughter, who is 5, decided she wanted to make it this year, with my supervision, of course.  This tastes so delicious with the turkey and even leftovers on a turkey sandwich.


2 cups fresh cranberries
1 large orange, quartered
1 cup sugar
2 cinnamon sticks
a few dashes of cinnamon

Using the shredder blade for the food processor, add the oranges and then the cranberries. Once they are shredded, add to a saucepan and add the sugar, cinnamon sticks, and a few dashes of cinnamon. Cook over medium-low heat until warm. This allows for the sugar to melt and it brings the beautiful red color of the cranberries to pop. Remove from heat and put in a covered bowl, store in the refrigerator. Serve with anything you like cranberries with!! Enjoy!
