This cranberry orange relish recipe is a perfect Fall and Thanksgiving gathering recipe to share with your family and friends.  When cranberries are back in the store, my husband is the first to buy them and an orange so we can have this relish for Thanksgiving.

Cranberry Orange Relish

Simple recipes are my favorite.  If a recipe has few ingredients, it has my attention.

Can you believe that cranberry sauce does not always come out of a can? There are actual berries you can make delicious recipes with.

You can make this delicious cranberry relish for your next family gathering.

I love to make this recipe and make extra.  I can then take the leftovers and make cranberry orange muffins.  Most of the work is already done and the muffins are a family favorite.  Perfect gift for your neighbors.

Watch our video below on how we make the relish.

1 12 oz bag of cranberries
1 cup sugar
1 seedless orange, quartered

cranberry sugar


In a food processor, add the cranberries and quartered orange (seeds removed).
Leave the rind on the orange.
Chop the fruit until it’ has a relish consistency.
Place the mix in a bowl and repeat until all the cranberries and oranges are processed.

Add the sugar into the bowl and stir to incorporate.

Cover the relish with plastic wrap and allow to sit for 2-3 hours.
Once it has sat for (so it has developed some sugary juice), stir again.  You can serve at this point, or place back into the fridge for another hour.


You can make this recipe ahead of time, as long as your family won’t eat it.

We use bigger size naval oranges when we make this.

Be sure to wash all your fruit.
