Cranberry Relish

Difficulty:

The holidays are almost upon us. If you are lucky enough to get an invitation to a dinner that includes a turkey or a goose, offer to bring the cranberry relish. This recipe involves no cooking, but I guarantee your efforts will be appreciated!

There are three ingredients needed for this recipe: whole-berry cranberry sauce, mandarin oranges and walnuts.

Buy already shelled or chopped walnuts. (The shelled walnuts are generally bigger pieces of walnuts). Be sure to buy the “whole-berry” cranberry sauce.

Until you are ready to make this relish, store the can of the whole-berry cranberry sauce and the can of the mandarin oranges in the refrigerator. They should be really cold when you make this relish.

You need a really nice bowl, big enough to hold the cranberry sauce, oranges and about ½ cup of walnuts. You can make and serve this in the same bowl if the bowl is big enough. Or just use a medium size mixing bowl and transfer the relish into your serving bowl.

Open the can of whole berry cranberry sauce and spoon it into a bowl.

Drain the mandarin oranges in a colander and add them to the cranberries.

Now add about ½ cup of walnuts.

GENTLY stir everything together being careful not to break apart the mandarin oranges.

That’s it!

Enjoy!

I love this recipe!! I have made this the past 5 years for Thanksgiving and everyone loved it! Instead of the walnuts I added Peacan nuts instead. Not like the ordinarily jellied cranberry you see.

Hi Leilani!
I totally agree! I actually make this year round. It takes about 2 minutes to prepare and everyone loves it. I have served it with both chicken and turkey as well as pork.
Cheers,
Kathy
