Cranberry-Orange Relish with Ginger

Scott Phillips

Yield: Yields 3 cups.

Servings: eight.

This ginger-tinged relish is more tart than sweet — a perfect complement to the holiday bird. You can make it the day ahead, if you like.


  • One 12-oz. package fresh cranberries, picked over and stemmed
  • 1 small navel orange, including the peel, cut into eighths
  • A generous 1/3 cup roughly chopped crystallized ginger
  • 1 Tbs. granulated sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. kosher salt

    More thoughts about leftovers: add some herbs, ground black pepper, and maybe chopped dried apricots, and use the result to stuff a pork loin.

    For those whose families won't help eat this sidedish: use your leftovers in muffins or a quick bread, as a small tunnel in a bundt cake, mixed with apples for a pie, etc....all yummy ways to take advantage of the tart and gingery flavors of the original dish.
