Sara Foster, of Foster's Market in Durham and Chapel Hill, NC, makes two cranberry relishes: one with citrus for more traditional tastes, and the other with seven-pepper jelly for a spicy flavor.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium saucepan, bring 1 cup water to a simmer. Add the cranberries, sugar, orange juice and zest. Stir until sugar is dissolved and the cranberries begin to pop, about 15 minutes.

  • Remove from heat. Divide relish in half, reserving half. Add orange segments to half of the cranberries. Stir to combine.

  • Add pepper jelly and fresh herbs to the remaining half. Stir to combine. Serve relishes in separate dishes.

Cook's Notes

For best results, use fresh cranberries -- never frozen -- and the best oranges you can find. Presented with the individual tastes of guests in mind, cranberry relish served two ways can be a thoughtful addition to this year's Thanksgiving table.

Great recipe - had to look for it this morning. I add oranges to the entire batch. And I bypass the pepper jelly and add walnuts to half. Great as a loeftover.
