Apple Cranberry Relish is a tangy new twist on a classic holiday favorite. Sweet, tart and chunky, this dish will be the star at any dinner table.
Cranberry sauce. There is no one single item that will start a full blown war at the holiday family gatherings more than those two words. The wiggly cranberry blob that you have to oh so carefully dislodge from its aluminum can holds a vicious place in many peoples hearts. For these faithful followers, no matter how amazing the homemade version of their beloved cranberry sauce comes out, they will always choose the blob. Stop trying to convert those people, it’s quite impossible. Let them have their can… WE have something much more delectable to discuss.
I am referring to the homemade, flavor filled bowl of yumtastic goodness known as Apple Cranberry Relish. It’s tart and sweet and has a surprise ingredient in it.. or maybe two. It’s a perfect side dish at your holiday table and for the non-can people, this recipe is sure to have them banging their fists on the table, demanding another serving. One question though, no matter that you cannot have holiday dinner without it, is cranberry sauce REALLY a side dish? I’ve always felt that it was a side dish to the actual side dishes .. but that’s just me and I digress.
This …dish…. is quite amazing. I have had other homemade versions, heck.. I have MADE other versions but this one is truly my favorite. Everywhere you look when researching homemade cranberry sauce, most of the recipes list off the same ingredients again and again. I didn’t want the same as everyone else so I threw in a few little surprises. Don’t worry, they won’t hurt you and I promise you will like them.
Yes, it truly is THAT easy to make an amazing Apple Cranberry Relish. Get creative… add in some raisins or maybe even walnuts, whatever you know you will like best. Don’t forget, this Apple Cranberry Chutney is also perfect for my Next Day Stuffing Waffles, when it comes time to using us some of those holiday leftovers.
And who knows, maybe you will even convert a can-lover.
Happiness and blessings!
