Please share your fav recipes; I did a search engine search and found some interesting ones, but having never made this before, would like the reassurance of "I make this every year and love it" type deal. Anyone?
I thought I remembered one that ferments in the fridge a long time (week? couple weeks?), intentionally, before serving.
I just looked online and can't find anything like that. Some kept up to a week, but no mention made of fermentation.
I did watch a video and learned the difference between chutney and relish: chutney is cooked, relish is uncooked. Who knew?
I also ran into some recipes that included garlic, onion, peppers, cumin, etc. I'm not looking for anything like that; I'm looking for fruit, spice, and ginger. However, if it's your fav maybe you should share it anyway because other team members might like it.
I'm going to use organic granulated sugar in mine, probably. Might reduce the sugar and add some stevia. I didn't intend to cook it, but am willing to try it if you rave about it.
So far I've had two replies:
I make a fresh cranberry relish every year that my family likes. I cook fresh cranberries according to the bag directions-you need to use the sugar because it won't thicken if you don't. After it cools, I stir in 1/3C of pieces of walnuts, 1-2 tbsp of orange zest and gently stir in a drained small can of mandarin oranges. You could add some grating of ginger-it would be really good. You could add a 1/4 C of grated carrot or finely chopped apple too. It makes a really chunky relish-sooo good. Keeps for 10 days in the fridge.Edit-Add the orange zest while you are cooking the cranberries for a stronger flavor.
2 cups chopped Braeburn apple
2 cups whole cranberries
1/4 cup chopped onion
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup golden raisins
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/2 tsp. chopped garlic
1 medium red pepper chopped
1 Tbsp grated ginger root (or 1 tsp ground ginger)
Combine all in a non-aluminum kettle. Simmer until all fruits and vegetables are tender, about 20-30 minutes. Stir often to prevent scorching.
