Homemade Cranberry Relish beats out canned cranberry sauce every time. The ingredients are simply fresh cranberries, orange juice, diced apple, brown sugar and cinnamon. The amount of sugar can be adjusted according to your taste, whether that be tart or sweet. Whole, fresh cranberries are a must but you can buy them ahead and freeze them. That way you will have on hand if you decide to make Cranberry-Orange Bread.
