Let the cooking begin...

I'm starting my Thanksgiving cooking with Cran-Apple Relish. It is delicious and freezes well, so not only am I set for tomorrow, I'm also set for Christmas.

Here's the recipe for Cran-Apple Relish:

1 orange, unpeeled

5-6 red apples unpeeled

1 pound of cranberries (actually, they usually come in 12 oz bags and that's enough)

2 cups sugar (I reduced this to one cup and it tastes fine.)

1 20 oz can of crushed pineapple, well drained

1/2 cup chopped pecans (I usually leave these out.)

Quarter orange and apples; remove cores. Grind apples, orange and cranberries in a food processor. Add sugar, pineapple and pecans. Mix well and refrigerate overnight. Makes 2 quarts.

Thanks to Cousin Leanne for the recipe!


  1. This sounds really good! I remember making an ambrosia-like recipe with raw ground up cranberries, marshmallows and whipped cream that was very tasty. Yours is healthier, though :) I'll have to give it a try.

  2. This looks so yummy, I'll have to try it.
    We made fresh cranberry relish last year, different than here though. At the time I had a started getting the flu, this was one of the only things I could taste that day. I believe it made me feel better because of all the vitamins and freshness. lol

    I look forward to make your version!
