Got Leftover Cranberry-Orange Relish?
Make something wonderful with these recipes.
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Yield: 4 cups Cranberry-Orange Relish
- 4 medium oranges*, washed
- 2 pounds fresh cranberries, rinsed and drained
- 4 cups sugar
- 1 heaping teaspoon cinnamon**
Notes in the Margin -* I'm really lucky in that my brother and sister-in-law always give me a big bag of tangerines from their tree in Florida at this time of year. Needless to say, more than once I've made this relish with tangerines instead of oranges. It still tastes just as good. Depending on the size of tangerines, I used 1 and 1/2 tangerines to each orange required in the recipe.
**I think it was Needlepoint 142 that first told me about adding the cinnamon. It heightens the flavor of the cranberries and oranges.
Typically, I make my relish just before Thanksgiving. Half is eaten then and the other is frozen for Christmas.
Otherwise, I'll use any leftover Cranberry-Orange Relish in two of my favorite breakfast dishes: Baked Oatmeal and Fruited French Toast.
