I'm despirate. I'm looking for an old favorite; cranberry - orange relish. We had to make it early in the week; so the ingredients would mesh (marry). It involved oranges and cranberries {and apples?} being ground up in a food grinder. I suspect that today a food processor would suffice for the berries, along with orange rind & maybe a supremed (the inner parts of the orange). HELP! I should do this Monday or Tuesday! ANY help will be appreciated!
