Kick up the flavor of your holiday turkey and dressing with this tart, make-ahead relish based on a recipe from Southern Living's classic "Christmas Family Favorites" (2000; Oxmoor House). It's a long-standing favorite around our house.
Mix cranberries and sugar in a microwave-safe container. Microwave at medium (50% power) 12 minutes, stirring once. Stir in orange juice and pecans; cool. Cover; chill 2 to 3 hours.
Makes 2 ½ cups.
This fresh cranberry treat also adds zest to post-holiday turkey sandwiches so consider doubling the recipe if you're expecting a crowd.
