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!



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.



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.
