1 - 12-oz bag of Cranberries, fresh or frozen
4 small or 3 large Navel Oranges (should be equal in volume to Cranberries)

A wonderful and slightly tart relish that goes with almost any meal.

Wash the fresh Cranberries and peel the Oranges.  Place all the ingredients in a blender or food processor and chop into small pieces.  Do not mash or puree.  

Taste the mixture for flavor and sweetness, and adjust to your personal taste.   Be careful not to overdue either, for both sweetness and flavor improve over time.

Place in a tightly closed container and store in the refrigerator.  It is best to prepare the day before serving to enhance the flavor and color.

The advantage to this relish is that no refined sugar is needed.

Serve and Enjoy!

Vegan FlagThe above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
