Cranberries are super healthy with lots of antioxidants. Thanksgiving, however, does not bring out the best in this super fruit as they are usually accompanied by lots of sugar. This recipe is what I would call healthy-ish as it does have some sugar but lots of fruit that adds most of the sweetness. It also keeps for a week (or more) in the refrigerator to spice up all the leftovers after the big day. Another positive for this recipe is that you can make it days in advance. You do need a food processor; a blender will not work for this recipe.
- 1 navel orange, scrubbed and quartered (any seeds removed)
- 1 apple, washed, quartered, and core removed
- 1 12-ounce bag cranberries
- 1/3 cup sugar
*Note, peels do not need to be removed. Wash well before cutting. Remove seeds before putting in the food processor.
- Using the metal blade in your food processor, process the orange pulsing until finely chopped.
- Remove the orange to a large bowl and repeat the process with the apple, then the cranberries.
- Add the sugar to the mixture and stir well.
- Refrigerate at least 4 hours prior to serving.

Do you peel the orange or leave it on for this relish?
Hi Reg, you do not have to peel the orange. We would recommend scrubbing it well before chopping. Make sure to remove any seeds before adding it to a food processor.
Excited to make this holiday challenge to help me continue to lose weight!
Glad you are excited. Enjoy the program!
