In our family, the official fruit of Thanksgiving is the cranberry. By themselves, cranberries are a harsh and tart fruit but when paired with some sweet ingredients make for incredible side dishes for the holidays. My dad’s personal favorite is cranberry relish. For years he bought it in a can in the form of a glob of jelly. Since trying my fresh cranberry relish recipe, the canned stuff has taken a backseat at the dinner table.
- 3 cups fresh cranberries
- 2 small navel oranges
- 1/2 cup sugar
As you can see, the ingredients are simple and with the help of your KitchenAid Stand mixer with the Food Grinder attachment, this recipe is just as simple to make. The great thing about buying attachments for the stand mixer as opposed to new appliances is they are multipurpose and a lot easier to store in your kitchen.
You can follow along and watch as I prepare this cranberry orange relish side dish. You’ll also get a closer look at how easy it is to use the food grinder attachment which you’ll see again later this week when we share our recipes for turkey left overs.
