Making your own fresh cranberry relish is easy and delicious. The perfect accompaniment to your holiday dinner turkey. I don’t know if the holidays would be the same without it.
I will sometimes look for taste testers when I work on a recipe. Often it’s my family. They tried it and liked it, then said but we want the canned kind. Lawd! I then asked a kind neighbor to be my taste tester so I could get a better opinion, other than my own. My neighbor thought it was quite good, so did I. Neighbor approved, Yay!
1 10 oz pkg Fresh Cranberries
1 c Orange Juice
Zest of 1 Orange
2 tsp Ginger, fresh grated
1 c Granulated Sugar
1 c Dried Cranberries
1 crack of Black Pepper
1 small Shallot, diced (optional)
Combine all ingredients into a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, then turn down to simmer stirring occasionally. Simmer 20-25 minutes. Mixture will thicken as it cooks. Chill before serving. It’s so good y’all! It has the right amount of sweetness and a hint of tart.
