Cranberry Apple Orange Raspberry Pineapple Relish

My goodness, that is quite the name, isn’t it? As so you can see, this Cranberry Relish recipe is packed with all sorts of fruits. It is a wonderful blend of sweet and tart, with a bit of crunch from the apples and smoothness from the raspberry gelatin that binds it all together.

I typically make a new cranberry sauce recipe every year for Thanksgiving, but I think this one is going to be a staple from here on out. A taster of this recipe noted that it was delicious enough to eat all on its own. Cranberry Relish is wonderful with roasted turkey and chicken. It can be made two weeks ahead of time which is great for those of us who like to get an early start on holiday cooking.

The original recipe from Amanda’s Cookin’ calls for 1 cup of chopped pecans which I omitted to suit our tastes. If you choose to add those, add them just before you add in the raspberry gelatin and stir to combine. Enjoy!

Note: This recipe should be started at least 24 hours before you plan to serve it. This allows the gelatin time to set up. I didn’t bother peeling my apples and it still turned out great.
