Cranberry Apple Relish

When most people think of cranberries, they think of the canned jelled kind served during the holidays, but there are actually many more ways to use them. For a little different twist on Thanksgiving, why not try a raw cranberry apple relish?  It is refreshing, with a hint of orange zest and sweet cinnamon, and it goes perfect with the other traditional dishes.  I know it takes a little more effort than opening a can, but really not much since all you need to do is pulse the ingredients in the food processor for about a minute or less.  If you have extra, this is wonderful served on a sandwich or wrap, or alongside a chevre (such as the recipe for vegan macadamia chevre on our site), or even just with a spoon like applesauce.
