Cranberry & Orange Relish

This cranberry and orange relish is my family’s favorite! It’s tart and sweet and the orange and orange liqueur give the flavor such depth.

Cooking time is about 10 minutes. I advise making this cranberry relish up to two weeks ahead of time. This keeps beautifully in the fridge and is always a glistening jewel on your Thanksgiving table.

1 12 oz bag fresh cranberries

1/3 cup white sugar

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/3 cup maple syrup

1 orange, for zesting and for juice

2 Tablespoons Grand Marnier orange liquor

Zest and juice the orange. Sort through the cranberries, and to discard any that don’t look fresh. Discard any stems you may find. In a medium sized sauce pan, add all the ingredients, including all of the juice and the zest from the orange. Simmer on medium heat for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. The cranberries will begin to pop once they get hot, and the longer the sauce cooks, the thicker it will become. Add 1-4 Tablespoons water if the sauce is too thick.

This sauce is wonderful served either hot or cold. Can be made 2 weeks prior to serving. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.
