Cranberry Relish with Orange and Pineapple

I’ve talked about how much I love go wild in the kitchen, and what a heroine  “Babette” is to me.  Well, I’m looking forward to one of those Babette weeks as we prepare for our family Thanksgiving Feast on Thursday! 

Today I made Cranberry Relish.

After you try this I’m pretty sure you’ll never buy a can of ordinary cranberry sauce again! It’s so easy and fast and so so good!


12 ounce bag of fresh cranberries, rinsed well

1 orange with half peel removed

1 cup sugar

1 can crushed pineapple

¾ cup pineapple juice (add water to make full amount if needed)

 chopped walnuts (optional)


Chop orange, including peel, removing seeds

Wash cranberries

Place all ingredients (except walnuts) in a heavy saucepan

Mix well.

Bring to a boil

Lower heat to medium and cook for about 8-10 minutes, stirring.

You will hear the cranberries pop and the mixture will thicken as it cooks. 

Add chopped walnuts if desired.  Refrigerate.
