Killer Thriller Cranberry Relish

Killer Thriller Cranberry Relish

I've combined the best of all recipes and here's what I came up with: (BTW I got the pear chutney recipe too late to add pears. This could easily be done. I also used what I love, so you could adjust as you wish. That's why there are NO RAISINS in this recipe! )

2 small bags cranberries, cleaned and sorted.

Put in a large kettle with water to cover the berries.

To this add:
3 heaping tbsp orange juice concentrate
2 cups brown sugar
1 orange, sliced and diced. Peel and all.
1 grapefruit, just the flesh
3 med cinnamon stix
1 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp allspice
pinch of cloves

Cook on low until berries pop and sauce begins to thicken. Remove from heat and add 1 green apple ( with skin ). Stir and put the lid back on to cool. ( I didn't want mushy apples ).

Refrigerate after cooled.

Now Here's the Best Part
While it's cooling, put 3 tbsp butter in a cast iron skillet. Add 1-1/2 cups chopped pecans. Then add 1/2 cup sugar and 1 tsp grated fresh ginger. Keep stirring until mixture browns nicely and roasts the pecans. Put on foil to cool.

Break into pieces if needed. Put in a ziplock and HIDE until just before serving the relish. Mix in just prior to serving.

This makes quite a bit, so I've placed some in jars for friends!
