Cranberry Orange relish "archived"

BillHartmann's picture

Am going to make the basic cranberry orange relish that has been on the back of the Oceanspray package for many many years.

Not that it really need a recipe. Cranberries, orange and sugar. But I could not remember if it was one or 2 oranges and what what the starting point for the sugar. And the sugar is to taste and I always use less and add some orange juice concentrate and a little triple sec.

When I got them them this year no recipe. Checked the website and again no recipe.

Called the 800 number and they gave it to me (one orange and 3/4-1 cup of sugar. But they said to write it down as the recipe is being "archived".

I wonder why?

I can see having new recipes on the package, but why not the website?

Bill, I have my cranberry/port simmering on the stove right now. I tripled mine as we are having 15 people Thursday. Cranberries, port, sugar, orange zest or lemon zest(I find that orange works better), orange juice and nutmeg. Yummmmy. Triple sec sounds good, too.

12 oz. cranberries
1 cup sugar
1 cup tawny port
1 t. orange or lemon zest
2 T. fresh lemon or orange juice
1 1/2 t. nutmeg

Simmer until thick and spoon into a mold or just put it in a bowl. Whatever suits your fancy.

I use the Cranberry-Orange Sauce recipe from Cook's Illustrated. YUM!!

3/4 cup water
1 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon grated orange zest
1/4 teaspoon table salt
1 (12-ounce) bag cranberries , picked through
2 tablespoons orange liqueur (such as Triple Sec or Grand Marnier)

1. Bring water, sugar, orange zest, and salt to boil in medium nonreactive saucepan over high heat, stirring occasionally to dissolve sugar. Stir in cranberries; return to boil. Reduce heat to medium; simmer until saucy, slightly thickened, and about two-thirds of berries have popped open, about 5 minutes. Off heat; stir in orange liqueur. Transfer to nonreactive bowl, cool to room temperature, and serve. (Can be covered and refrigerated up to 7 days; let stand at room temperature 30 minutes before serving.)

I'll bet you mean the uncooked stuff. 12 oz of berries, 1 thin skinned orange, 1 cup sugar (or to taste) and I throw in one crisp red apple too. Grind in grinder, processor or whatever. Refrigerate for a couple of days to blend the flavors. We think something magical happens to this when you freeze it. The color deepens and the flavors meld even more. Thaw before serving, of course.

YES!  You have to freeze it first!  I have no idea why, but it makes all the difference.


 


I believe in compost.


 

What if there were no hypothetical questions?

Breaks down the cell wall of the cranberry and softens the orange skin. It's my mom's favourite. Are you two channeling?

Mmmm, it's my mom's standard, and mine too.  I can eat the stuff with a spoon.


I'm not sure where Wilcox is--near Regrima, maybe?

On the local radio show they where talking to Lidia about uses for leftovers.

She suggested using cranberries in pancakes and muffins. I think that they would work well in a muffin. Not sure of the pancakes.

But she also that they could go good with squash. And that does sound good to me.

I may have mentioned it along the way, but pot roast made with whole cranberry sauce is delicious.

I assume that you are talking about a cooked sauce.

I am not sure what Lidia was talking about. She did say not the jelly and one, time, but not always mentioned a chutney. And she has a chutney receipe that cookes the cranberries.

I would not have thought that it would be good on beef.

But a couple of years ago I made a roast pork with a recipe that had I got from here and replace the raisins with craisins and that was good.

It is a pot roast, and with the whole berry sauce. It flavors the gravy with a lovely sweet sour flavor.  Going to do it with some venison soon.  I think it could use fresh whole berries also that would cook along with the meat.

Thanks for passing on the suggestions. I made a cranberry relish that has pears, cardamom and five spice powder in it that I got from Epicurious that I really like, but I usuallly have quite a bit left over. The muffin Idea seemed like just the thing to use it up. TY again.

Below are two quick bread recipes that use cranberry.  I make them every year and give them as part of my Christmas bags to the guys at work, and also send them Up North.  Okay, I keep a couple in my freezer for me too.

Yes that is the recipe.

I might not have made it clear, but they did give me the recipe.

My comment was about why they would discontinue a recipe like that.

And yes it does need to be refrigerated to get the flavors to come out.

I have frozen small amount making TV dinners with some leftovers did not think that it was that much different.

It is pretty strange, but far be it from me to try to second guess the PTB.

I am wonder if the e coli problems with vegetables that they are concerned about using uncooked ingredients or their attorneys are.

There isn't a whole lot of problem with e.Coli with this.

Don't know why there where be any other fresh produce.

And I don't believe that I every heard of any problems with either cranberries or oranges.

I was just speculating why they might get rid of the recipe. Can't think of any other reason.

I did a google to see if there maybe had been some e.coli scare associated with cranberries that I had not heard of.

And found just the opposite. Research showing that cranberries would suppress e. coli.
