Recipe: cranberry and fruit thanksgiving relish ? best cranberry sauce ever!

4 servings
15 min
20 min
Very Easy


Number of serving: 4
1 Small box of red jello (we like raspberry. Strawberry is a bit too sweet.)

1 cup hot water (Do not add the second of batch of water, which is suggested on the box.)

2 large oranges, peeled and segmented

2 large apples, cored and cut in bite size pieces

2 large pears (should be relatively firm), cored and cut into bite size pieces


  • Mix jello with hot water to dissolve. Put bit-size pieces of fruit in the food processor and pulse several times to grind roughly to about 1/4″ cubes or smaller.
  • Make sure the cranberries are ground up well — if they are not, it could be tart. Depending on the size of your food processor, you may need to do it in two batches.
  • When the jello is room temperature, add all the fruit including its juice. Mix well. Chill in the refrigerator until set.
  • We love serving it with turkey in place of regular cranberry sauce or relish, or you can eat it as dessert as well, with or without whipped cream.
  • We normally make a double batch, using the large jello box, and using 1/2 – 2/3 for the actual Thanksgiving, and save the rest for us to eat later.
