Cranberry Relish

What you need
2-3 pounds of whole, fresh cranberries
1 large seedless orange
1-2 to 3/4 cups of sugar.

What you do
Grind up cranberries and orange.  
Add sugar and mix together.
Refrigerate 24 hours.
According to your taste and preference, you can use more or less orange and more or less sugar. I've heard some people add ground-up apple.
It lasts a long time in a refrigerator and freezes well.
It's a great side dish with waterfowl. It's tasty with cottage cheese, too. You can also put it in jello
