Cranberry Relish Recipe

Cranberry Sauce in 5 Minutes or Less

Cranberry sauce may be something of an afterthought on many Thanksgiving tables, but not mine. When it comes to the condiment, each year, I've been known to be predictably unpredictable.

One year I tackled a basic cranberry sauce, followed by a caramelized onion rendition the next. Then came a zesty, four-ingredient version, followed by last year's pick, a controversial fresh cranberry salsa with jalapeños.

This November, I'm putting aside my worries of cranberry sauce not jelling; my no-fuss Friendsgiving calls for an equally no-muss cranberry sauce. This condiment, with its crunchy texture and addictive tartness, will blow your mind. It takes just five minutes to make — and about as much time to devour straight out of the food processor! Don't expect any leftovers with this fast cranberry recipe.
