Cranberry Plus Relish

Friends who own a cranberry bog treated us to freshly harvested cranberries. They were so pretty and tasty that I was determined to use them for something besides plain cranberry relish. I started out with a basic cranberry/orange relish and worked with it until I came up with this recipe. I've found that even folks who don't particularly care for plain cranberries seem to "relish" this side dish.

    Great flavor! I would recommend using less than 1 cup of sugar. I put in 1 cup and thought it was too sweet. I think you could do 3 oranges instead of 4. This recipe makes a lot!

    I just made this for Thanksgiving Day tomorrow. I had to adjust the measurements because there will be only four of us. Other than that, the only thing that I did different was to use fresh pineapple. Boy, did this turn out great. My husband wants me to use this recipe from now on. I suggest that you use really great tasting fruit such as Gala or Honey Crisp apples and sweet, juicy oranges. I had fresh pineapple on hand so I used that and it was already very sweet to begin with.
