Cranberry Orange Relish
2 sweet seedless oranges, remove corse white ribs & ends and cut in forths. Place in food processor & chop coarsely.
Rinse 2-3 cups of fresh cranberries. (If using frozen, it works best to use warm water as to soften them slightly. Otherwise your get an icy, frosty result.) Process just until coarsely chopped. Mix together oranges and cranberries together, at this stage the blend can be sweetened to taste with a liquid sweetner of choice or sugar. Refrigerate for up to 2 weeks, can also be frozen.
This can be served with chicken, turkey, pork, use it to top your morning oatmeal, or add it to your morning smoothy.
We like to add this mixture to Sweet Baby Rays Barbaque sauce and use it on Dave's Bar-B-Q Spare Ribs...but that's another recipe!
