Fresh Cranberry Relish from Grandma S.

We hope you had a great Thanksgiving! We had such a wonderful dinner with lots of things to post about...edible bacon bowls for spinach salad, a meyer lemon drop with a lemon foam, heritage and heirloom turkeys, the best mashed potatoes I have ever made, and more...We will be posting all week about these delicious dishes.

Today I wanted to share an easy recipe for the most delicious fresh cranberry relish from Justin's grandma. We have never been cranberry jelly people and once I had this relish, I knew it would be a tradition on the table. This can be made the night before or a few hours before...

1. Start by washing and coring an unpeeled red delicious apple and washing and cutting one half of an orange with the peel on. Then, put them in the food processor until chopped. You want them to be somewhat coarse but not too chunky.

2. Add 2 cups of fresh cranberries and pulse until incorporated. Again, don't overprocess.

3. Now transfer to a bowl and stir in 1 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts. Let it sit in the fridge overnight or for a few hours for the flavors to blend.

Grandma says you can freeze this as well. It is wonderfully fresh and delicious!!
