To make Food Network’s uncooked cranberry and orange relish, wash, dry and skin a thin-skinned seedless orange, making sure no seeds are present. Quarter the orange, and chop it into rough pieces. Using a food processor or meat grinder, chop 1 12-ounce bag of well-washed and patted-dry whole fresh cranberries and the orange pieces.
Transfer the mixture to a serving bowl, and add 1 cup of sugar. Cover the bowl with a lid or plastic wrap, and allow it to stand for 24 hours without refrigerating it. After 24 hours pass, place the dish in the refrigerator. Keep it for up to two weeks before serving.
