Every year I make a raw cranberry relish with oranges and apple for Thanksgiving. My friends and family always request it.

I usually double the recipe and share with friends and neighbors. Yes, that is a lot of cranberry chutney since this recipe makes 8 cups.

This is truly the best cranberry relish with pecans that I have ever had! It is also tasty when you make it with walnuts.

Cranberry Relish with Nuts Recipe

This Thanksgiving recipe is so easy to make. You just chop up everything, except the pineapple and sugar in the food processor. The same technique is used in my Cranberry Salsa.

The diagram below shows you how I make this recipe layer by later in a 2 Qt Glass Bowl. This is the bowl I refrigerate the relish in.

This is what the recipe looks like all stirred up. Can you believe how much of the red from the cranberry comes through when it is mixed? Yum!

Cranberry season is one of my favorites of the year. I just cannot seem to get enough cranberry. I have also made Cranberry Pepper Jam.

This cranberry orange apple relish goes with just about anything. I have added it to a salad, eaten it for breakfast, and put it alongside all sorts of casseroles. You can even eat it with Cranberry Muffins.

My sister and I text each other whenever we find a new food or dish that it goes well with.

It is not too tart and not too sweet, so it goes with lots of different foods.

I make several batches of this in November and December. It is perfect for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

If making the night before, should the pecans still be stirred in? Is the idea to soften them?
