cranberry, apple, walnut relish

For me, when there is turkey, there is cranberry sauce- and not the kind from the can. It's fresh and tart and so easy to make, it's become a staple. When there's leftover turkey I like dipping it into this relish, or maybe putting it on a sandwich. Yum. I've made a couple different variations of cranberry sauce and think I've landed on this one. I like the crunch of the walnuts and proportion of apples to cranberries. Add this to your table...for Christmas perhaps!

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup cranberry-apple juice
  • 1 pound fresh cranberries
  • 4 cups diced peeled Granny Smith apple (about 1 pound)
  • 2/3 cup coarsely chopped walnuts


Combine sugar, juice, and cranberries in a large saucepan; bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat; simmer 15 minutes or until cranberries pop and mixture thickens.

Remove from heat; stir in apple and walnuts. Spoon into a bowl; cool. Cover and chill at least 4 hours.
