My little brother, who hates cranberry sauce, was underwhelmed when I told him I was making my personal recipe for cranberry relish for Thanksgiving dinner at his house this year. He promised me he would try it though and he loved it! I hope you try it and love it too!
I have to brag a little bit about the centerpiece Julie The Garden Fairy made for me to bring to my brother’s house for Thanksgiving dinner. Stunning, isn’t it?!
TIPSY ORANGE WALNUT CRANBERRY RELISH
12 oz fresh cranberries
1 1/4 cup sugar
zest & juice of 1 lemon
zest & juice of 1 orange
2 stalks celery finely chopped
1 tablespoon Triple Sec liqueur
1/2 cup toasted walnuts, finely chopped
1/4 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
a pinch of salt
LET’S MAKE IT!
In 2 qt saucepan over medium heat, combine all ingredients.
Bring to a boil, stirring frequently.
When cranberries begin to burst, use potato masher or fork to achieve desired consistency.
Remove from heat, cool completely. Store covered in refrigerator until use.
Serve cold or at room temperature.
