Fresh Raw Ginger-Cranberry Relish

Light, Vibrant & Palate Cleansing!

Natural Raw Cranberries having amazing healing attributes. Research shows that this small, amazing red fruit might be instrumental in cleansing and soothing the kidneys, fighting bacteria which leads to stomach ulcers, as well as supporting cardiovascular & liver function.  They are also high in antioxidants and provide many anti-inflammatory benefits. Combined with Ginger Root, you have double the healing power, as ginger is great for digestion & is known to reduce inflammation.


12 oz Bag of Fresh Organic Cranberries

2 Oranges Juiced & Zest from 1 Orange

2 Tsp Lemon Juiced & Zest

2 Tsp Fresh Ginger Root

1 Shallot Minced

2 Tbls of Agave Nectar


In a food processor chop the ginger root until fine, add the orange & lemon juice with zest of both, add the cranberries, and pulse the motor until the berries are finely chopped (broken not mushy). Transfer the mixture to a bowl and stir in Agave. Cover & chill the relish for a minimum of 30 minutes. This relish keeps, covered and chilled, for up to 2 weeks.

TIP: Using a microplane zester/grater will produce lighter, fluffier zest.  If your relish is to tart, simply add more Agave to taste.  Serve as you would any cranberry sauce or relish.
