Mr.Food Test Kitchen Tip!

  • There's no need to peel the oranges, 'cause we actually want bits of peel in this relish. And if you want to use frozen cranberries, make sure to thaw them before processing!

My mom used to make this at Christmas time. She used the old fashioned grinder that attached to the table (we're talking more than 50 years ago) and she used 1 orange, 1 apple, fresh cranberries strawberry jello. Its awesome!! I cant get fresh or frozen cranberries here in Mexico and every year at Christmas I always miss it.

I made and love it. I made it again but made too much can I freeze it and how long will it last.

Although we have not tried freezing this recipe, we think you could. However, you may need to drain off some of the extra moisture that freezing it will create. Enjoy!

I used rome apple it was so good thank you

My mother also made this but she added drained crushed pineapple to it instead of the nuts.

my mother always made this and it is really good!
