A Christmas party at the tearoom we operate inspired my friend and me to create this relish. An instant hit, it turned everyone who tried it into a cranberry lover. When served in a glass dish, it's pretty enough to be the centerpiece of your table.

"Very good. I decrease the sugar as it is too sweet

I get asked to make this every year for Thanksgiving. My nieces take home the leftovers to use on turkey sandwiches."

"Really good, refreshing recipe. As a diabetic 42gm carb is way off the charts and I had to afdapt the sugar content. I adapted the recipe trying splenda in moderation, as well as truvia and other sugar base substituets. The only thing using these products if that the are 20X sweeter, often have an after taste and do not do well under heat or extreme cold. Adding them at end of recipe or cooking time is best. Less is best and more appealling to the taste. The juces alone are sweet enough, as are the fruits .

I made this for a group of Seniors at a church function. I had many coming to ask about the dish and the recipe. Which I was happy to share."
