Maybe it's because I don't know much when it comes to cooking but this was a disaster for me. Read More

Mine was runny too. Maybe I cooked it too long but I wanted the cranberries to get really soft. I just added a tablespoon of corn starch at the end to thicken it. But boy it tastes great. The smell of orange and vanilla smells like a creamsicle and then the berry smell kicks in when it cooks. I'd make this again before company comes just to make my house smell wonderful. Read More

I loved this! I've been looking for a cranberry relish that I actually enjoy because cranberries are so good for you. Plus they're a pretty tradition. The blueberries cut the tart/bitterness factor perfectly without overpowering the cranberry flavor. Genius! My only criticism would be that it was a little runnier than I would have preferred. Maybe it's because I used frozen blueberries instead of fresh (the grocery store didn't have fresh the day I needed them) or maybe I simmered too long? Not long enough? Regardless this will be the cranberry relish I make from now on. Read More

This is very good! Even people who do not like cranberry sauce liked this. The blueberries help cut how tart it is. I like the other viewers thought that it was alittle runny so I added 1 Tabls. cornstarch. I still thought it was too runny so I added another 1 Tbls. of cornstarch. This helped thicken it a bit more. This dish can be used in so many different ways. I think it would be good poured over cream cheese served with crackers. I will keep this recipe and it will be a star at every Thanksgiving from now on. Thank you for the great recipe. It is even going in the recipe box of cherished recipes from my granmother. Read More

I made this last year for Thanksgiving and was asked to bring it again this year- which is saying alot because my family usually doesn't touch cranberry sauce- it was mostly put on the table for the "tradition"aspect. But this is one they actually eat and enjoy! Read More

Excellent but 2 small changes: I also found it to be too runny and added a tblspoon of corn starch at the end and it was still runny. Maybe cutting back the orange juice would help? Also most of my family thought there was too much vanilla. I'd reduce to a third or so then add until you are satisfied. This is a re-user for sure - we loved it! Read More

1 9 18... http://allrecipes.com/recipe/212689/festive-fresh-blueberry-and-cranberry-relish/... 'First exposure to this type relish. I had crans to use up & blues in the freezer. Since blues were homegrown & I was using almost two cups of them I decreased sugar to 1/3c. That was enough. I subbed 1T orange marmalade for the 1t zest. A bit too orange-y for me. 'Thickened with 2T cornstarch. 'May have with biscuits. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

I made this recipe for the first time this Thanksgiving it was scrumptious! The blend of flavors sweetness to tartness is perfect. Just as the others stated it was a bit runnier than I wanted so I added 2 tsp. cornstarch (I had doubled the recipe). I will never buy or eat canned jellied cranberry sauce again!! Because it was still a bit saucy it was wonderful on French toast the next morning. I can see it on waffles pancakes ice cream etc!! Read More
