Fresh Cranberry Relish

Tart and refreshing, this light and fresh cranberry relish recipe makes the perfect palate cleanser during an opulently rich dinner. Try to find the sweetest apples that you can — Honey Crisp or Fuji work really well. You can also eliminate the honey from this recipe if you don’t need or want the extra sweetness.  As an extra bonus, fresh cranberries are bursting with antioxidant Vitamin C and magnesium!
