Mildred's Cranberry Orange Relish walks the line between a dinner side and dessert—to famously delicious effect! Combining tart, wintery cranberries with the sunny, summery sweetness of oranges, this relish is pleasingly zesty and refreshing no matter the meal or season. Mildred's Cranberry Orange Relish can lighten a heavy meat dish, cut through the richness of gravy, or serve as a unique topping to vanilla ice cream. A quick and easy-to-make pick-me-up and a vibrant twist on classic cranberry sauce all at once!


1 unpeeled orange, seeded, cut into eighths
1 (12-ounce) package frozen cranberries, rinsed and drained

Store in the refrigerator or freezer before serving.
