Cranberry Relish or Salad

I love fresh made cranberry relish. This one is perfect a little bit sweet and a little bit tart and a little bit crunchy.

2 12 oz bags fresh cranberries
2 medium apples
2 medium pears
2 navel oranges
1 8 oz can crushed pineapple in juice
1 cup sugar
1 cup pecans, chopped

Cut the cores out of the pears and apples.
Cut the pears, apples and oranges into pieces that will fit into your food processor.
In a food processor chop the cranberries, apples, pears, and oranges skins and all.
Add the pineapple and sugar.
Mix well.
Chill at least overnight (longer is OK).
Add the chopped pecans just before serving.

Note: The next time I make this I am going to substitute honey for the sugar since I am trying to reduce the amount of refined sugar in my diet.


  1. Oh I love to make fruit salads Steph. I never made one with fresh cranberries. I'll have to try this. Would be interested to know how the honey works out.
