1 cup Walnuts, pieces
1 cup Raisins

This easy to make cranberry orange raisin relish with walnuts is a delightful treat to make for Thanksgiving or any other holiday or festive meal. Cranberries can also be washed and frozen and stored in tightly sealed freezer containers for use any time of the year.

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

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 the cranberry orange raisin relish with walnuts in a tightly closed glass or plastic container and store in the refrigerator for 1 or 2 hours before serving to enhance the flavor and color.

Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator in the same closed container for a few days.

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!
