It isn’t blueberry season—at least not in the U.S. But fresh blueberries from Chile are available. Not at low summer prices, mind you. But those who love their blueberries year-round need not go without.

One reason to buy fresh blueberries now is to make this easy and delicious Blueberry Cranberry Relish, delicious with Christmas turkey and ham.


This recipe is best made a day or two in advance to let flavors blend. It makes 12 quarter-cup servings.


  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 cup fresh orange juice
  • 8 ounces fresh cranberries
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon real vanilla extract
  • Preparation

    1. COMBINE all ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium heat.

    2. COOK until the sugar dissolves and the berries soften, for about 15 minutes. Remove from heat, cover and chill.

  • Dinner: A side with holiday turkey or ham; or everyday lamb, pork and poultry dishes
