My mom makes this relish every year. She has made it for so many people, who all love it.
It is really easy. You will need either a manual or electric grinder, or a food processor. If you only have a blender, you can use that too, but what you’ll want to watch is that you don’t liquefy the fruits. If you’re using a blender, chop small batches of fruit and use brief pulses of chopping to prevent liquefying the fruit.

- 1 to 2 pounds raw cranberries
- 4 apples
- 4 oranges
- 1/4 to 1/2 cup sweetener of your choice – honey, Rapadura, Sucanat, maple syrup, evaporated cane juice, etc.
Wash cranberries. Remove any bad cranberries.
Wash and core the apples, leaving the peel on, and cut into wedges.
Peel the oranges and cut into wedges.
Chop all ingredients in batches in the food processor or food grinder. Mix well. Add sweetener, to taste. Store in the refrigerator overnight to let the flavors mingle. Enjoy!
