Fresh Cranberry Apple Relish

This Fresh Cranberry Apple Relish is just delightful… the perfect compliment to any turkey!  I’m not a lover of the canned cranberry.  It’s okay on a leftover turkey sandwich or something like that but on the BIG DAY, I’m looking for something with a little more umpff!!  We seriously eat this  Fresh Cranberry Apple Relish right out of the bowl and can’t put it down…
