Cranberries- a recipe from my mom
1 bag of cranberries (I used 340 grams but any size bag is fine, just adjust the rest of the ingredients)
1/2 cup to 1 cup of sugar (you decide! Taste it before serving and make sure it isn't too sour.)
Rinse and sort the cranberries. They should be red, firm and feel hard like an apple. You wouldn't eat a soft apple, would you? Ditch the bad ones and keep the best for the recipe. Place the sorted cranberries, zest of the orange(only the dark orange part, the white bit is bitter- don't use it!), the juice from half the orange, and the apple, peeled and cut into chunks in a food processor.
Process until you are satisfied with the size of the chunks. Here are two examples (I prefer the second one- it has been processed a bit longer and therefore is finer.)
I hope everyone has a very happy Thanksgiving!
