Cranberry and Orange Relish

Cranberry and Orange Relish

Justin Bernhaut

Serves 8

Hands-On Time: 10m

Total Time: 30m


  • 2  tablespoons  unsalted butter
  • 2  tablespoons  grated fresh ginger
  • 1/2  cup  dark brown sugar
  • 1  cup  orange juice
  • 16  ounces  cranberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1/2  to 3/4 cup orange marmalade
  • 1/2  teaspoon  black pepper
  • 2  tablespoons  minced fresh cilantro (optional)


1. In a saucepan, over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the ginger and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add the sugar, orange juice, and cranberries.

2. Cook until the cranberries burst and the sauce thickens, about 15 minutes. Stir in the marmalade to taste (depending on desired sweetness). Turn off heat. Stir in the pepper and cilantro just before serving. Serve warm or at room temperature.


The sauce can be prepared and refrigerated up to 4 days in advance, but do not add the cilantro. Serve chilled or at room temperature. Mix in the cilantro just before serving.
