Cranberry Relish

 

 

IMG_2544

This is delicious on Salmon, fish, all kinds of wraps, chicken…you name it, but especially with Thanksgiving dinner. If you are like me and don’t like to eat refined sugar, you can substitute raw sugar, turbinado, coconut sugar or even Xylitol. This recipe is very easy to make and if you want your house to smell like it really is a holiday, just start a batch of cranberry relish.  It smells wonderful! For those squeamish about raisins, DON’T give it a second thought.  My husband, who can’t stand raisins, totally loves this relish, in fact he requests it!  I freeze cranberries when they are in season, so I can make it year round.  It is excellent with many things other than turkey. My mom gave me this recipe, it has been in my family for many years and has become a tradition.

Cranberry Relish

2 16 oz cans crushed pineapple

2 cups raisins

2 packages fresh cranberries

1/2 tsp Allspice

1/2 C sugar

2 tsp salt

2 tsp ground ginger

2 tsp cinnamon

Combine all ingredients in a pot, cook over a medium heat, stirring occasionally and cook until the cranberries pop.  Cool and store in a glass jar in the fridge.  Will keep a long time.

  7. I have always thought Cranberry Relish sounded gross and have never looked at a recipe for it. After seeing your recipe I think I may actually try it. 🙂 It sounds good!

    I would agree with you. It does sound kinda gross, but with this, you have the sweet and sour going on, then you have the “fall” seasonings of allspice and cinnamon, that make your taste buds dance.
    I do hope you’ll try it.

    Indeed it would. If you do a turkey sandwich, it’s wonderful on that. I’ve even mixed it with plain yogurt and had a nice sweet treat.
