Cranberry-Orange Relish recipe courtesy of Jennifer Clair

Makes 2 cups

The condiment to serve with this year’s bird. Practically as easy as opening a can.

Juice and zest of 1 navel orange (zest is optional; use if you prefer a strong orange flavor)

1 12-ounce bag fresh or frozen cranberries

2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger

1/3 cup sugar

¼ cup chopped dates (optional)

In a medium saucepan, combine the orange juice and zest, cranberries, ginger, sugar, and dates. Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to low and cook, covered, until thickened and bubbly, about 15 minutes. Allow to cool to room temperature. Serve or chill for up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator.
