Fresh Cranberry Orange Relish

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m a little weird.  I like things that are a little off the wall, and I don’t like a lot of things that are traditional.  That red jelly-looking stuff that comes in a can that was a staple at our Thanksgiving dinner table in my family was NEVER something I would eat.  It didn’t look appetizing and I hated the taste of it.

A few years ago my mom said she was making cranberry relish, and I was immediately grossed out.  She assured me it would be really good, so I reluctantly tasted it.  Well, turns out mom was right, the cranberry orange relish she made was DELICIOUS!

I want to be clear, this is not a recipe my mom or myself created, so we aren’t taking credit for it.  It was given my mom verbally by a former coworker and we don’t know where she got it from.  Since the origin of the recipe is unknown to us I’m not sure exactly who to give credit to.


  • 1 8 oz bag of organic cranberries
  • 1 medium orange, quartered, rind on
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar


  • Put all ingredients in a blender and pulse until chunky
  • The orange rinds should stay on!

I know it sounds odd to leave the rind on, but it’s delicious!
