Fresh Cranberry Relish (Substitute for Cranberry Sauce)

“I've been making this for years, and is such a refreshing change from the standard canned cranberry sauce served on holiday tables. It comes together quickly with a food processor. Goes great with turkey or ham, and is especially good on turkey sandwiches! I'm guessing on the quantity this recipe serves, It's enough to make a large serving bowl, and fill 3 jars to give away too! Cooking time is just for boiling water. Hope you enjoy this beautiful addition to your Thanksgiving and Christmas buffet! (don't worry, the orange rind will not be tart, as there is substantial sugar!)”
