Cran-Apple Relish


This relish is great on toast or in yogurt. Try it on turkey for a seasonal treat!


  • 2 large red apples, washed and cored, cut into quarters
  • 1 cup fresh cranberries
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup sucanat
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 cup whey


  1. Chop the apples and cranberries together on a clean cutting board until they reach the desired consistency. Pour into a clean glass bowl and add the sucanat, salt, and whey. Mix together with a wooden spoon, smashing the mixture to get the juices flowing.
  2. Pack the mixture of apples and cranberries into a sanitized quart jar. Using your hand or a spoon, press the contents down to submerge the mixture, leaving about 1 inch of space at the top of the jar. Cover tightly with an airlock fermenting lid.
  3. Leave on the counter, away from direct sunlight and drafts, for 2 to 3 days. Once the relish is ready, cover with a regular lid and place in refrigerator until needed.
