What Is an Easy Recipe for Making Cranberry Orange Relish?

Trisha Yearwood's cranberry orange relish recipe from her Food Network show "Trisha's Southern Kitchen" is an easy recipe to follow. This recipe uses four ingredients and requires minimal preparation and no cooking. The recipe is ready in 10 minutes.

Add one 12 ounce package of fresh cranberries and 2 peeled oranges to a food processor. Pulse the fruit until it reaches the desired consistency, and then transfer the fruit to a 1-quart bowl. Add 1/2 cup of sugar, and stir until well blended.

Continue adding sugar to taste, adding up to an additional 1/2 cup. This step is necessary because sweetness varies between oranges. Sweeter oranges require less sugar, while tarter oranges require more. After achieving the desired sweetness, finely chop 1/2 cup of pecans. Add the chopped pecans to the relish, and stir well.

If desired, serve this cranberry orange relish immediately. It does not require cooking or refrigeration prior to serving. Food Network featured this recipe on the "A Yearwood Thanksgiving" episode of Trisha Yearwood's cooking show as a Thanksgiving cranberry sauce to accompany turkey. This cranberry relish keeps for up to two weeks in the refrigerator in a sealed container. The recipe yields 2 cups of relish.
