This tasty, fresh 5-ingredient cranberry relish recipe is easy to make in about 10 minutes in your food processor or blender. It's tart, sweet, fruity, and can be made in advance to save time the day-of.


  • 12 ounces fresh cranberries
  • 1 naval orange
  • 1 red apple
  • 3 tablespoons honey, or more to taste
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • Pinch of cinnamon, optional


  1. Prepare the orange: grate 1 tablespoon of orange zest. Peel your orange, remove any pith and cut it into sections (roughly into quarters or eights, so that it will fit in your food processor).
  2. Prepare the apple: chop the apple into quarters, leaving the skin on and cutting out the core.
  3. Blend: add the apple, orange, and cranberries to your food processor or blender. Pulse until blended but still chunky. Blend in batches if needed and scrape the sides as you blend.
  4. Add honey & cinnamon: stir in honey and an optional pinch of cinnamon. Add more to taste.
  5. Serve: If time allows, store in the fridge for at least 1 hour before serving. This will strengthen the flavors and soften the cranberries. Serve cold.
