Family-Favorite Cran-Apple Relish

Total Time

Prep: 20 min. + chilling


6 cups

I made this relish for first time 53 years ago when I was 14. My mother wasn't able to prepare Thanksgiving dinner that year, so I was the cook for our family of 12! We all liked this dish so much that it became our family's traditional cranberry relish.


  • 1 navel orange
  • 4 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 4 large apples, peeled and grated
  • 2 cups sugar


  1. Finely grate outer orange rind and set aside. Peel off and discard white membrane. Slice the orange into eight pieces. Place a fourth of cranberries and orange slices in a food processor or blender; process until evenly chopped. Transfer to a large bowl; repeat until all cranberries and oranges have been chopped. Stir in the rind, apples and sugar. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
<B>Editor's Note:</B> Relish will keep in an airtight container for 1 week in the refrigerator, or freeze in serving-size portions.
