Now that we have wrapped up the dinner for two menu, it is time to focus on Thanksgiving dishes with the help of my aunt and grandma!! The thanksgiving recipes I will be sharing aren't always typical recipes I would feature on a nutrition blog but during the Holidays I really try to focus on using real and organic ingredients rather than just a bunch of processed store bought
crap stuff. I also become more aware of portion sizes, usually at my families holiday events I just get one round of food and I focus on 1/4 of my plate being some type of lean protein, 1/4 of my plate green vegetables and the other 1/2 I will have fun with and try all the other dishes! This way I get to have whatever I want but not over do it too much!! Today's recipe is one of my grandma's favorites and she makes it every year, you can eat this relish by itself or add it on top of your protein!
Nothing says good cookin' and home like old recipes and cursive handwritten notes!
First step is to wash the cranberries well and then process them!!
Then process your pecans
Add the pecans and the cranberries into a large mixing bowl
Next process the oranges (whole with the peel on), once finished add the oranges into the mixing bowl
Add the cup of sugar and mix all ingredients until well combine! Then you want to place the relish in the fridge to allow to flavors to 'marry' (Mema's cooking language)
First she is sweet...
Then she is sassy!!
The finished Relish!!
You will love this recipe because it is easy to make, doesn't require any cooking time, has a lot of flavor and just adds another delicious addition to your holidays without very much effort!!Love, Marla
