Easy No-Cook Cranberry Relish - Only 3 Ingredients

Easy  No-Cook Cranberry Relish - Only 3 Ingredients

I'm not much of a canned cranberry jelly person. For some reason it tastes like the 'can' to me! So whenever that condiment was passed around the table on Thanksgiving I would just keep passing it! And the way it jiggled just creeped me out! I know...I have serious cranberry jelly issues! But I know that it's a 'must' to serve on Thanksgiving! It's a tradition! If it wasn't on the table there would be an uproar, I'm sure!

So when I discovered this next recipe, about 10 years ago, it was my savior! I couldn't believe how easy it was to make and how delicious it tasted! No cooking involved! All you need is a food processor to puree the ingredients! In my opinion Cranberry Relish blows cranberry jelly out of the water any day! And my guests always ask for the relish now. This relish is so refreshing because of the oranges. I still put out a small bowl of the canned stuff,  for old times sake, but it usually ends up in the garbage because just about everyone goes for the relish! Try it for yourself and you'll see what I mean!

Cranberry Relish

1 large navel orange
1 bag (12 oz.) fresh cranberries
3/4 cup white granulated sugar

 1. Remove zest from orange in wide strips, leaving most of the bitter white pith behind. Cut zest up into pieces.

2.Now cut the orange in half, and scrape out the pulp. Reserve all the pulp.

3. Add the cranberries, orange zest and orange pulp to a food processor, pulse until pretty well chopped. Add sugar, pulse quickly, then pour into a jar.

 4. Let sit in the fridge a few days to let the flavors meld. Serve chilled. Makes about 2 cups of relish.
