Recipe Comments and Reviews


this recipe has a very fresh taste. and is quick to make. I didn't have candied ginger, so I substituted 1/2 teaspoon of fresh ginger juice put medallions of ginger in my garlic press and squeezed the juice out of the ginger everyone loved it, asking for the recipe. this will become a staple with roast chicken or turkey, or even on the side with a turkey club sandwich.


I made this for our Thanksgiving Dinner, got many good comments on the relish. It is not a very sweet relish, but it was well like by grandma, that was the main test!


Really good. Very sweet but wasn't what I was looking for or expecting. Guests loved it.


This recipe is absolutely delicious. I served it to my family and plan to serve it sgain to guests on Thanksgiving.
