Cranberry orange muffins

When you think of Fall, you think or pumpkins and turkey.  There are so many other things to Fall, like cranberry orange muffins.  There are so many more things you can do with cranberries than buying them from a can in gel form.

This is not a super sweet recipe muffin (it’s a muffin, not a cupcake) , so you can taste all the flavors of the cranberry and orange.  You can make it sweeter, but adding more sugar.  We even sprinkled a little sugar on the top to be fancy.

This is a perfect use of the cranberry orange relish leftovers don’t you agree?
