Serve partly thawed with the turkey at Thanksgiving–the sweet tart taste is good with fried chicken, too.
4 medium oranges
2 lbs. cranberries
2 medium unpeeled apples, cored
4 c. sugar
Peel oranges; trim off and discard white part of rind. Put orange pulp and rind, cranberries and apples through food chopper. Add sugar and mix well. Pour into glass jars and seal and freeze.
