It’s Thanksgiving Week! Today I offer a super simple and healthy substitute for one of those traditional Thanksgiving foods, cranberry sauce. If you’ve only tried cranberry sauce out of a can, you are in for a treat! This raw cranberry relish is delicious and comes together in minutes. Make it the day before you serve it, so it can chill and the flavors can combine.

This recipe comes to you by way of Anthony William, aka the Medical Medium! His book containing the recipe is at the end of the post.

Raw Cranberry Relish

Cranberries are a powerful food. That power comes from the cranberry’s ability to fight the streptococcus bacteria and other infections.

Most of the world’s cranberries are grown in the US, Canada and Chile. And the majority of those cranberries are processed into products such as juice, sauce, jam, and sweetened dried cranberries, with the remainder sold fresh to consumers. Cranberry sauce is a traditional accompaniment to turkey at Christmas dinners in the United Kingdom, and at Christmas and Thanksgiving dinners in the United States and Canada.

Canned cranberry sauce was my introduction to this tart fruit. It has been a joy to create my own cranberry relish for the holidays, and find other uses for fresh cranberries.
