Fresh cranberry relish recipes

My recipe is very simple and changes a bit each time I make it.

Bag of fresh cranberries - washed and picked over
Orange juice - to taste
orange zest

I combine the cranberries and some fresh oj in the food processor until I have the consistency that I like. Then I fold in the zest.

Sometimes I add some celery, jalapenos or nuts...just depends on my mood.

I do basically the same thing with the addition of a little sugar. Chopped walnuts are an occasional addition.

We use a bag of fresh cranberries, a whole orange (that has been well scrubbed) and half a cup of sugar.

Yikes, I forgot to add 'sugar to taste'. I'll not be writing a cookbook, for sure.

I think Tyler Florence adds Grand Marnier - that sounds mmmmmm.

i do one that's just cranberries, sugar to taste put in a baking dish in the oven just until the cranberries are soft - then you stir in 1/4 c of bourbon and let them sit about 15 minutes before serving. Now and then we add lime zest to the cranberries and sugar and then stir in tequila. Either way it's easy and I guess the possibilities are endless.

I just make the berries according to the package. Then I zest and chop an orange and mix that in with about a cup of sugar.

Has any one ever tried Susan Stamberg's MIL recipe, the one Susan has given on National Public Radio for 20 odd years? I am interested if it really tastes good. Here's the recipe:
Mama Stamberg's Cranberry Relish
2 cups whole raw cranberries, washed
1 small onion
3/4 cup sour cream
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons horseradish from a jar ("red is a bit milder than white")
Grind the raw berries and onion together. ("I use an old-fashioned meat grinder," says Stamberg. "I'm sure there's a setting on the food processor that will give you a chunky grind -- not a puree.")
Add everything else and mix.
Put in a plastic container and freeze.
Early Thanksgiving morning, move it from freezer to refrigerator compartment to thaw. ("It should still have some little icy slivers left.")
The relish will be thick, creamy, and shocking pink. ("OK, Pepto Bismol pink. It has a tangy taste that cuts through and perks up the turkey and gravy. It’s also good on next-day turkey sandwiches, and with roast beef.")
Makes 1-1/2 pints.

I'll have to try this on Thanksgiving. It's hard for me and mine to imagine anything bourbon doesn't make better!

Ooooh, I'm copying this one!

There is nothing that a good shot of good ol' bourbon can't make better; a bad day, a marinade, a good day, cranberries, a great day, gravy, water, water with ice cubes, egg nog, anything and everything - and I'm close to ready for making my day better while I do last night's dishes.
