This is a tasty and colorful relish for cranberries. I make up a batch of a dozen jars around Christmas for friends and neighbors.

This is very good. I made as written with a couple of minor exceptions. I added a dash of vanilla to smooth out the flavor and used grated orange zest rather than strips. I think next time I'll try a red wine with a little sweetness. Read More

Delicious! Everyone enjoyed it even those who say they just like "regular" cranberry sauce. I have also made it with half orange juice and half red wine. Read More

I make this recipe every year and it's always a big hit. I add more orange zest than is called for with a little hint of vanilla as well. Trim with mint sprigs in a clear glass dish for gorgeous color on your holiday table. Read More
