Cultured Cranberry-Orange Relish
This is even better than my usual cranberry relish, plus it has probiotics...LOVE.
2 bags of fresh cranberries (organic if you can find them--we did!)
2-3 fresh oranges, ditto
1/4 C. organic sugar (or less--I didn't actually measure.) (You can use a bit of honey if you prefer)
fresh ginger, grated, if you have it...less than 1 tsp. unless you REALLY like ginger...
1/4 cup Basic Whey
(...which you make by putting whole organic yogurt in a strainer lined with clean cloth, over a big bowl. Let it drain overnight, now you have whey in the bowl and Greek-style yogurt in the strainer--voila!)
Grate the cranberries coarsely in your blender or food processer.
Peel oranges, separate into sections and cut in small chunks.
Mix everything well and pack into clean glass jars.
Put a lid on it!
Let it rest on the countertop 2-3 days or so (culturing takes longer when it's cold out)...it will develop a lovely flavor. Taste it and if suits you, refrigerate!
