When I was engaged I sat down with my mother’s recipe book and copied out family recipes for myself. From my Nana’s pecan pie to my Aunt’s fabulous Dirt Cake, I wanted to be able to create the same memories at my dining table that I grew up with.
Over the years I’ve added more recipes over the years-like my stepmother’s amazing Sweet Potato Casserole with Pecan Topping and the Grand Marnier Cranberry Relish I’m excited to share with you today.
Total Time: 45 Minutes
Making The Relish: 10-15 Minutes
Making It Taste Great While Doing Nothing: Minimum 30 Minutes
Serves: 6-8 People
1 – bag (16 oz.) fresh cranberries
½ cup, sugar
1 orange, zested and juiced
2 ounces, Grand Marnier liqueur
Place all ingredients in a food processor. Pulse several times to breakdown the cranberries and incorporate the ingredients. It should still be a little chunky.
Allow the cranberry relish to sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes before serving so the flavors can come together. Serve.
After relish has been sitting for 10-15 minutes or so, taste it. If it needs to be a bit sweeter, add a little more sugar and continue to let it sit and come together.
Check the consistency. If it needs more liquid, add a bit more orange juice.
