My mom makes this recipe every Thanksgiving, as it is one of my families favorite side dishes at Thanksgiving dinner. Her recipe is a little different from Marge's though. My mom uses cranberries, oranges, sugar and apple. Marge simply uses cranberries, oranges and sugar. I wonder how many variations there are out there.
Having tried both, I think the addition of the apples gives the dish a little more flavor and substance, although I still enjoy it without the apples. I also might cut back on the sugar a bit, but that's just my personal preference!
The Cranberry Relish will be served with 1/2 Cucumber Sandwiches and a cup of Soup (your choice) ~5.00. Come in to the Blue Elephant today and try this delicious side dish and its accompaniments!
