    Cranberry relish

    This is one of my favorite relish recipe because it combines the tartness of cranberries and the freshness and sweeteness of oranges. You also get all their health benefits because you eat them whole and raw. Add the vitamin C, the amazing colors, which means, lots of phytonutrients. In our home, we don’t just wait for Thanksgiving or Christmas, whenever we need a pick me up side dish, that’s the one we go for.
    You can buy cranberries in the fall, freeze a few bags for later on and you will be all set!

    Ingredients:
    1 bag of cranberries
    2 medium oranges (organic preferrably)
    2-3 Tbl brown sugar

    Preparation:

    1. Pour the semi frozen cranberries in a food processor.
    2. Wash your oranges and cut the top off and cut into quarters.
    3. Add the oranges (the whole thing) by spreading them around the processor and sprinkle the sugar evenly.
    4. Process everything. you will need to stop, mix and process again until most of the large pieces are nicely processed and the sugar well mixed.
    5. Taste, add sugar if needed, this part is up to you. Some people like it tart, others more sweat. Serve.

    Nutritional facts about cranberries:

    Everyone knows that they help prevent and heal urinary tract infections, but newer research also seems to indicate that they can even prevent stomach ulcers from developing. Cranberries are a major source of anti-oxidants so they are naturally anti-cancer. They are also anti-inflammatory. So, they are now in my list of super foods and they don’t cost hardly anything! So stock up!

    You can serve it with tofurkey, seitan dish, mash potatoes and gravy. You get the idea, but don’t stop there. I love using the relish as a desert.

    Cranberry desert

    All you have to do is find a nice serving glass (or mug as in the photo), spoon some of the relish, then sprinkle some granola, then a little soy or nut milk, then more relish and finish with some granola. It is pretty, delicious and very good for you. If you want more fancy, you can add a scoop of coconut or soy icecream but it doesn’t need it.

    Ok, so no more excuses for buying cranberry sauce in a can (that looks like dog food when it comes out) or other lesser versions. You know better now!
