Thanksgiving Cranberry-Orange Relish

Step aside canned-jellied cranberry sauce, this recipe will not disappoint!  I’m talking so amazing, it’s a MUST ADD to your Thanksgiving menu!  I love it so much, I buy cranberries in season and freeze them to make this other times of the year.  Enjoy!


1 cup walnuts, toasted
1 package (8oz) whole cranberries
2 apples, any kind is fine, though green & tart is delish!
4-6 mandarin oranges, unpeeled)
1/4 to 3/4 cup sugar, depending on your desired sweetness


  1. Toast walnuts at 275 degrees for 10 minutes
  2. Wash all fruit, take off the stems of the oranges
  3. Cut apples and oranges into fourths (and de-seed)
  4. In a Cuisinart-type food processor (Vitamix will probably work too)
  5. Combine 1/3 of the cranberries, walnuts, apples, oranges and sugar in the food processor until chopped finely, then add the next 1/3 of ingredients and process, and finally, the last 1/3 of ingredients.
