I started by adding the cranberries, the whole peeled orange, nutmeg, ginger and 1 cup of sugar to the food processor and running it until finely pureed.
When I tasted it at this point, it was too tart and I opted for another 1/4 cup of sugar. Unfortunately, the relish was still too tart!
My solution this time was to add two apples that I had on the verge of going bad. It worked! It brought the tartness down quite a bit but now the whole thing was too sweet. Omit that last 1/4 cup is my recommendation and you'll have a well balanced relish.. I suspect it will ferment sooner than spoil.
Throw it into a storage container. You're done. How easy was that? This should last at least 2 weeks though I'll keep you posted as mine sits in the fridge. At 2 weeks it's still going strong. (A month later it had still not spoiled but I no longer felt willing to eat it past 1 month).
This is by far the easiest cranberry condiment for your turkey, adding bright flavor to compliment the turkey's blandness. Not the the other cranberry sauces take much work but this one also brings in the freshness of uncooked fruit. It's really an underappreciated delight.
