|before the food processor does its thing|
- 1 navel orange
- 1 lime (original recipe called for 1/2 lime but I use it all)
- 1 tart apple or whatever you have on hand
- 3/4 C pitted dates (if the package is 1 C, I use it all)
- 12 oz cranberries
- 1/4-1/2 C sugar, to taste
Basically, chop everything up in a food processor and mix it together. Chill overnight to let the flavors mix. I do the orange and lime and the dates first and since my food processor is small, I do 2 batches. This makes sure the rinds of the fruit get chopped small enough. It also uses the juice from the citrus fruit to keep the dates from sticking to stuff. Then I chop the cranberries and apple in 2 batches, adding 1/4 C sugar to the second batch. Put it all in a big bowl, mix well, and taste to see if it needs more sugar. This year, it was a blood orange rather than navel so not as much sweet from the orange and I used the whole 1/2 C of sugar.

I hope we all have a good Thanksgiving!
