  • 2 cups cranberries (frozen and thawed are fine)
  • 10 oz whole orange (with peel, cut down into smaller pieces (4 clementines would be perfect))
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar


  • Place ingredients into food processor, orange rinds and all, and pulse until it has broken down to a relish consistency with small flecks of orange and red showing.
  • Place in sealed container and refrigerate to allow flavors to blend.
  • Enjoy! Keeps for several days and is easy to make ahead of time.


To thaw frozen cranberries, simply pour the whole cranberries into a bowl and fill with warm water. Allow them to sit for a couple of minutes, then strain and proceed.
