Cranberry Orange Relish Recipe

This healthy, tasty relish is quick and easy to prepare, and invariably gets rave reviews at holiday parties. We like it so much that we keep making it even after the holiday season. Cranberries are rich in vitamins A and C and potassium and have proven benefits for the urinary tract. New studies show that the tangy fruit is effective for preventing and helping to relieve symptoms of urinary tract infections. There is also evidence that eating these tart fruits may lower cholesterol and prevent cancer. The walnuts are rich in minerals and are a good protein source, and because you also use the rind of the oranges, you get a good supply of bioflavonoids. Orange peels have strong cancer-fighting effects, so go ahead and be liberal. After all, prevention really is the best medicine.

• 1 bag (12 ounces) fresh cranberries
• 1 orange, with peel, cut into fourths
• 1/2 cup walnuts
• Honey, Sucanat, or sugar to taste

1. Place the cranberries, orange, and walnuts in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Empty the mixture into a bowl, add sweetener to taste, stir well, and refrigerate. The flavors in the cranberry relish get deeper as it sits, so it’s a good dish to make the day before a big holiday meal. Serves 6 to 8.
