Cranberry Relish Anyone??

My mom makes the most fab-u-lous Cranberry Relish. For real, it is simply the BEST!!! And can you believe it only takes three ingredients!!! Yep, you read it correctly, 3 ingredients!!!! So, it is super good, super simple, and semi-super healthy (maybe without so much sugar). :)

You take a bag of cranberries and freeze them. Freezing them makes it easier to send them through the grinder.

Then take one orange and quarter it.

Alternate between putting the cranberries and the oranges through the grinder. Yes, you put the entire orange in, peel and all. This is my mom's old-fashioned grinder. I love it.

The scent in your kitchen will be amazing!!! Raven, this could be a new fab-u-lous candle scent. Y'all HAVE to check my friend Raven's website. She has these fantastic candles and other fab-u-lous little dirty pretty things. Start placing your orders now for the holidays. Her blog is pretty awesome too. ;)

Okay, I digress, you put the cranberries and the oranges through the grinder. Then you add 1 cup of sugar into the mixture and mix it all up really good.

Put in the refrigerator until your ready to eat. OMG!! Yummy!! It is so good and really, really easy. It is way better, I think, than the kind where you add in jello. Plus, then you just have to do more. Ha! Believe me, you will have to make this yourself and not buy any. It is so much better.

Here is my niece, Danica, helping again. She really is the best sous chef. :)

  1. That looks fabulous. We had homemade cranberry sauce yesterday. It also had port wine in it. I loved it!

    On the tamales.....we buy them. I wish I had a recipe to share with you! We've never made them or even thought about it. I hear it's very labor intensive, like an all day process. We have so many great places around here to buy them, so that is what we do. Sorry I can't give you any good info for making them! :)
