Mom’s Orange-Cranberry Relish

This orange cranberry relish recipe that I found at George’s food blog A nod is as good as a wink to a blind horse was delicious. I prepared it for Thanksgiving and it was a hit with the family. They enjoyed it as a side dish with the roasted turkey. The next day, the family enjoyed it again as a spread on turkey sandwiches.  I am going to prepare this festive relish for Christmas dinner. If you are looking for a relish to serve up with your roasted meats, think of adding this one to your holiday table. Thanks George!

  1. I'm such a sucker for anything cranberry. I've made something similar from a Whole Foods recipe, though I think it included sherry or some other alcohol. The orange and ginger really make the cranberry flavor pop, don't they?
