Fresh Cranberry Relish


  • 24 oz fresh cranberries
  • 4 mandarin oranges, peeled and segmented
  • 1 medium honeycrisp apple, finely diced
  • 1 cup pecans, finely chopped
  • 2 T honey
  • 1/4 c fresh orange juice


  1. Sort, clean, and blanch* cranberries.
  2. Combine cranberries and oranges in a food processor. Process until cranberries are finely chopped.
  3. Add apples, pecans, honey, and orange juice. Mix well.
  4. Serve chilled.


*Blanching brings out the vibrant color and flavor of an ingredient by quickly dipping in boiling water and then immediately setting in iced water. The skin on the cranberries will pop, this has no affect on the quality of the finished product.
