This relish is raw, so it contains enzymes that aid in digestion. It is also free of refined sugar, coloring and preservatives. It’s the perfect recipe to add antioxidants and enzymes to your holiday meal!
I also like making this relish all throughout the winter season – cranberries are so healthful that it’s a good idea to eat as many as you can while they’re in season. This relish can be a condiment for your meals throughout the season.
12-14 oz. fresh cranberries, rinsed
1/3 cup raw honey (or 4 Tbs. raw honey and 4 Tbs. apothocherry)
2 tsp. fresh ginger, grated
zest of 1/2 orange
juice of 1/2 small orange
1/4 tsp. sea salt
Put all ingredients into the bowl of a food processor. Process until the cranberries are well chopped and close to the consistency of chunky applesauce. Store relish in the fridge, in a glass jar with a tight-fitting lid. Relish will keep in the fridge for up to 3 weeks, so you can make this recipe ahead of time.
