With Thanksgiving only a week away, it’s time to get our menus planned! I will definitely be including this relish in the meal. Cranberries are a super fruit and are full of great things like vitamin C and powerful phytonutrients and antioxidants. Studies have even shown a strong link between fresh cranberries and cardiovascular and liver health, due to their anti-inflammatory benefits. Scientists have proven that the compounds in the cranberry work best when kept together, so the whole fruit lends itself to a much higher nutritional profile than supplements, juice, or tinctures. All in all, eating whole, fresh cranberries is much more nutritious and effective than any other form of cranberry.
This recipe is based on the delicious cranberry relish that my sweet aunt makes at Thanksgiving time. The general cranberry relish recipe has been around forever. I think a lot of families have variations on it that they make to accompany their Thanksgiving turkey. While this relish tastes wonderful with turkey, it also tastes fantastic by itself or on vanilla ice cream. Yum! Plus, it’s so simple and only takes a couple of minutes to make.

Cranberry Orange Relish with Ginger & Nuts
While this relish tastes wonderful with turkey, it also tastes fantastic by itself or on vanilla ice cream. Yum!
- In a large food processor, add the orange and cranberry and pulse until very roughly chopped.
- Add the walnuts, ginger, honey, and lime juice and continue to pulse until combined, but still slightly chunky. You can whiz it up more and make a puréed texture if you’d prefer. My aunt just always served it chopped, so that’s what I’m used to.
- This will keep in the fridge for several days and tastes better the day after you make it.
