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
Place all ingredients (except walnuts) in a heavy saucepan
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.
