This recipe is truly great! The taste is so refreshing. For a slight variation: add 1/2 cup pecans to the food processor. This thickens the relish slightly and adds another layer of flavor.

WOW!! I can't begin to say how wonderful this was. The liqueur is what made the difference! It is key to refrigerate for several hours so that the flavors meld. Thank you so much for the recipe...

Very good sauce. Made one without the liqueur and was just as tasty. It is quite tart, depending of the season you make it. I used a very sweet orange which I believe helped cut the tartness....

I've made this many times for Thanksgiving and everyone loves it! In my opinion, its much better than cranberry jelly! Very easy and it has a very refreshing flavor! I use 1- 12oz. bag of fresh ...

WOW! What a change from the mushy canned cranberry sauce I usually serve at Thanksgiving! Sweet, but vibrantly tart. I doubled the recipe & with the leftovers, I added pecan pieces, chopped ...

Can't believe more people haven't made this delicious recipe. It is wonderful. Tart and sweet at the same time. Have made it for going on two years now and get many raves from others.

We LOOOOOVE this recipe. It tastes great on a leftover turkey sandwich. Try adding leftover relish (1/2 to 1 cup drained) to your favorite generic muffin recipe - delish!

I make this recipe reduced-sugar by substituting Equal for the sugar. I use about 16 packets but you could use more. Also, it's important to make this the night before so the flavors can blend...

This is exactly like the cranberry orange relish my mom always made at Thanksgiving. It was always my favorite. I can't wait to make it this year!
