Grandma Eleanor's Cranberry Relish


Saying good bye to the jelled cranberry log that slithered out of a can wasn’t hard to do once I found Grandma Eleanor’s Cranberry Relish recipe.

My Aunt’s mother-in-law, Eleanor, called me (and everyone else) “Baby Doll”. In her honor, I post this awesome recipe-it’s easy, colorful and rounds out the Thanksgiving table. Keep it in your back pocket throughout the year-just freeze those cranberries that are so plentiful and inexpensive this time of year.


Grandma Eleanor’s Cranberry Relish 
1, 12 oz pkg cranberries

1 apple peeled and cut into chunks ( I like to use Gala)
