Do you all remember me falling IN LOVE with that Trader Joe’s Cranberry Orange Relish? One of my loyal readers (Thanks Suzanne ~ you rock!!!) offered up her FAVORITE version that she uses for Thanksgiving and Christmas each year. I cannot WAIT to make this when I get back, but, I thought I’d share the recipe with you all in case you wanted to try it out next week!
Cranberry Orange Relish
1 bag of fresh cranberries (approx. 2 cups)
1 cup of orange juice
1/2-3/4 cup of sugar (this could be modified with a mixture of sugar/agave)
** Danica’s optional add would be to add 2-3 tsp of orange zest for color and flavor
Heat orange juice and sugar in pan on low until sugar dissolves. Add cranberries. Simmer on low. Cranberries will start ‘popping’. Simmer approx. 10 minutes until cranberries break down. Careful not to boil over as it makes a mess! Cool and refrigerate. Yummy!
I buy the bags of Ocean Spray cranberries when they’re in season and throw them in the freezer.
Enjoy and be sure to leave a comment letting me know if you make it!!!
