Cranberry Orange Relish

I got a great deal on fresh cranberries and decided to make¬† and can my own cranberry sauce. I could also have frozen it- but freezer space is at a premium right now. I didn’t want plain cranberry sauce so I decided to make cranberry- orange relish.

Cranberry Orange Relish

5 (12 oz.) bags cranberries

5 cups sugar

5 cups orange juice

2 T. grated orange zest

Rinse berries and drain. Place berries with the remaining ingredients in a large pot and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Berries will start to pop. Cook until berries are popped and sauce thickens a little. Cranberries have a lot of pectin and will thicken up when they cool. Ladle hot sauce into hot jars. Wipe rims and adjust lids. Process in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes. Makes 7 pints.
