IntroductionCranberry Relish is very refreshing in the summer. An excellent accompaniment to a Thanksgiving turkey, and a lovely side dish for most any pork or turkey sandwich.

1 pkg. red raspberry sugar free gelatin - or any red gelatin
1 cup boiling water
2 stalks celery, raw, finely diced or ground
2 oranges - juice and some zest
2-3 apples, fresh (1.5 cup, chopped or ground)
1-2 cup cranberries - ground
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1/4 cup Splenda- or to taste
Optional - ground nuts- pecans, walnuts, hazelnuts; all are nice.
Choose any red gelatin- raspberry, cherry, black cherry, etc.
Bring 1 cup water to boil and dissolve gelatin in large bowl. Add 4-5 ice cubes and allow to cool.
While gelatin is cooling, chop, grate or grind produce. I use a meat grinder to run all the produce through; however a grater can be used or even a food processor.
I begin with the oranges- which produces mostly juice and will keep the apples from discoloring.
Grind, chop or juice your oranges into a large bowl; next run the celery through, then apples and finally cranberries.
If you really like cranberries use a whole bag, if it is not a real favorite- use less.
Sprinke the package of unflavored gelatin and sweetener (Splenda or other) over the chopped up produce and stir to dissolve.
Add chopped nuts- pecans, walnuts, hazelnuts- and stir.
Pour all the produce into the cooling gelatin, stir to taste and see if it is sweet enough for your taste, or if it is too sweet grind a few more cranberries in.
When you are satisfied, pour into covered container and refirgerate until fully set.
Number of Servings: 8
