Author Notes

My parent's neighbor brought this relish to our day-after-Thanksgiving party every year. I've never been a huge cranberry fan, so it quickly became my condiment of choice. Use a firm ripe pear and an orange with a fragrant rind. —MrsWheelbarrow

  • Serves 1 pint
  • 1 small orange
  • 1 large ripe, firm pear, cored & cut into 1/4" dice
  • 2-3 tablespoons honey, I prefer rosemary honey
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped crystalized ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
In This Recipe
