Try a tasty twist on traditional holiday mainstay with this cranberry relish recipe.
Cranberries are tart little packages of antioxidant and vitamin packed goodness. But here we use a natural sweetener rather than the typical highly processed granulated white sugar one would typically use. Alongside the sweetness of the other fruits, we get a lovely, balanced and flavourful condiment.
I've always preferred this relish recipe rather than traditional cranberry sauce. The flavours are fuller and more complex with the citrus and pineapple adding freshness to this condiment.
Try this at your next holiday feast. It just might become a new family favourite.
(Makes 32 Servings / Serving size = 2 tablespoons )
1 large navel orange, unpeeled and chopped
4 cups fresh cranberries
1, 1/2 cups granulated monkfruit sweetener (or granulated white sugar)
1/2 cup strawberry preserves
1 cup fresh pineapple, crushed
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon chia seeds
Place the orange pieces into a food processor and finely chop it, peel and all.
In a heavy saucepan, combine cranberries and sugar over medium heat, cooking until cranberries begin to burst (approximately 10 minutes).
In a mixing bowl add the preserves and mix in the cranberries, stirring until well combined. Add the remaining ingredients and continue stirring until they are well incorporated.
Store in an airtight container and refrigerate until cold.
