I have used this recipe countless times and always have fantastic feedback. To make the relish sweeter add more apples and/or raisins rather than sugar. The apples will sweeten it naturally. I typically double the apples. Add walnutes or other nuts if you want a little change as well. This relish is also great with vanilla ice cream (warm the relish a tad). Almost like a pie/crumble without the crust! Read More

The title says tart and it really is. I ended up adding a little sugar to it. The recipe doesn't say to remove the cinnamon sticks but I did before serving. Read More

OK - I cheated. My rating above is for a dramatically changed recipe. As written I'd give it 2 stars - "tart" is an understatement - and I LOVE cranberries. This recipe does however make the basis for a terrific cranberry relish. I added sugar a little bit at a time to taste - probably more than 1/2 cup reduced the vinegar by half left out the cinnamon and cloves because I was looking for an unspiced relish. I chopped the apple because I wanted the different fruits to be of similar size. Crushed some of the apples at the end which made the sauce nice and thick. With these changes everyone loved it - especially on top of pumpkin waffles or oatmeal. Read More

I found this way too tart. I ended up adding about 1/2 cup more sugar and then got raves on it. Next time I make this I will just eliminate the vinegar. Read More

It is super delicious!! Added a quarter cup of sugar because it really is tart. Be sure to remove cinnamon sticks and cloves to prevent choking. Recipe states to stop cooking when slightly thickened, but you may want to let it cook a little longer to help it gel better. Read More
