TMF Readers, as we all know, living in a stepfamily sometimes leaves us parents either alone at the holidays or with just our spouses. With that, I have teamed up with my good friend and YouTube sensation, Noreen Lambert to provide you with our series entitled, “Thanksgiving for 2.” Noreen has been kind enough to join forces with me to lend all of us her expertise, recipes and tips for holiday cooking. If you would like to watch Noreen make this fabulous recipe, you can do so on our homepage on TMF TV. Enjoy!
Noreen’s Cranberry Apple Relish
1 bag fresh or frozen cranberries (16 ounce)
1 Granny Smith Apple, chopped
1 Cup granulated sugar
1 Cup water
1 Teaspoon Orange Extract or 1 Tablespoon fresh orange zest
Step by Step Instructions
Over medium heat combine water and sugar in a medium saucepan. Add in cranberries and apples and bring to a simmer. Tend closely. When the cranberries begin to pop, turn down heat and allow to simmer for 5 minutes until the mixture begins to thicken. Remove from heat and allow to cool. You can serve this warm, room temperature or cold.
Any leftovers can be saved in an airtight container or jar in the fridge for up to 1 month.
