Cranberry Orange RelishOne of the best things about November? Cranberries. Yes, the summer stone fruits are gone for another year and delicate strawberries are resting up for a springtime show, but late autumn brings us tart and tangy cranberries.

Cranberries and their Scandinavian cousins, lingonberries, are too mouth-puckering for most of us to eat out of hand. But temper that tartness with a little sugar and cranberries become the star of the holiday show. If you don’t count turkey!

Homemade cranberry sauce is so easy I often wonder why I ever purchased it in cans. And dried cranberries are a wonderful addition to homemade Swiss Muesli, Pumpkin Cranberry Scones and Fruitcake. But one of my favorite fall-winter recipes is Cranberry Orange Relish.

Cranberry orange relish adds something special to the Thanksgiving table. But this relish isn’t just for the holidays. Try it all winter long with pork chops, pot roast, baked chicken, a baked bean meal, or served alongside a one-dish casserole.

Cranberry-Orange Relish Recipe


• 4 cups fresh or frozen cranberries (about 1½ bags)
