Paleo style Organic Cranberry Relish

I love the old-fashioned deli-style cranberry relish.

Paleo style Organic Cranberry Relish

No, not the cooked jelly-kind of sauce that comes in a can.  Fresh ingredients.  Oranges and apples.  So I was a little skeptical when I found this recipe with gelatin in it at ourpaleolife.com.  Then – it was really hard for me to find all the ingredients.  I ended up ordering several items through Amazon.  But the result was worth all the wait!  Of course, I made a few changes to the original recipe. Here it is:

  • 2 Organic Gala Apples, cored and peeled (@$1 from Meijer)
  • 2 Organic Navel Oranges, peeled and segmented (@$1 from Meijer)
  • 2 cups Organic Cranberries, washed  (@$5 from Meijer)
  • 1 cup Fresh, Frozen or Canned Pineapple (@$2 from Meijer)
  • *4 Tbsp Grass-Fed Gelatin (@$1 from Amazon) …but the full container cost @$20
  • 2 cups Unsweetened Organic Cranberry Juice (@$6 from Amazon) …but the full container cost @$12
  • ⅔ cup Raw Honey (@$3 from Amazon) …but the full container cost @$8
  • Pecans for garnish (optional)

Bring cranberry juice to room temperature.  Coarse-chop all fruit in a food processor or by hand. Set aside. Pour the cranberry juice into a 2 quart bowl. Add in the honey and whisk to combine, until the honey is dissolved.  Sprinkle the gelatin onto the surface of the juice and let it sit for a minute to soften. Whisk the gelatin until dissolved in the juice.  Add the apples, oranges, cranberries, and pineapple to the juice. Stir to evenly mix everything.  Cover and refrigerate 6 hours or overnight, until firm. Serve cold. Garnish with  pecans, if desired.

This make a large amount … filled a 2 qt bowl, with another side dish for sampling!

My guess is that this recipe will serve 12-15 at about $1.50 per serving
