I use a bag of berries, sub the sugar with splenda, use one large or two small navel oranges, , put all in processor, , store in bowl,, fits great in my diabetic/high BP, high cholesterol/allergy diet!! Maybe I will add some cinnamon to some this year for a change! - 11/10/09
This reminds me of the Cranberry/Orange relish my mother used to make, but we never used the lemon, cloves or cinnamon. The recipe was on the bags of cranberries we bought and we also used the entire orange. We'd put everything but the sugar into a meat grinder, then add the sugar after. - 11/10/09
I have never liked cranberry sauce, due to the tarty flavor. I made this dish as my contribution to Thanksgiving meal. I chose not to use the food processor, b/c I wanted the chunky homemade appearance. The orange in it made a wonderful citrus taste. Delicious! I received rave reviews! - 11/28/09
I make mine with 1/2 c. maple syrup, 1/2 c. of cran-raspberry juice, zest of 1 orange, 1 diced apple and 1 bag cranberries. After boiling, I toss in a 1/2 c of walnuts. Delicious and not too sweet. I'll try the orange and lemon juices from this recipe instead of cran-raspberry and see how it is. - 11/22/09
