I love to make my own home-made cranberry relish for the holidays. This recipe—featuring dried cranberries—is super easy. I adapted it from a recipe from California Walnuts, which I will be demonstrating on the Hallmark TV Channel Home & Family Show for the holidays.

You can watch the episode from The Hallmark Channel here.

Save RecipeSave Recipe


  • ½ cup California Zinfandel wine (or any red wine)
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 small blood or navel orange
  • 1 tablespoon agave syrup (optional)
  • ⅔ cup toasted coarsely chopped California walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly grated black pepper


  1. In a small pan, bring 1/2 cup Zinfandel to a simmer.
  2. Add the dried cranberries, remove from heat, cover the pan, and let stand until wine is absorbed (about 15-20 minutes).
  3. While the cranberries rest, peel and remove the white pith from the orange. Holding the orange above a bowl, slice the sections of orange and drop them into the bowl.
  4. Add the cranberries, agave syrup, walnuts, parsley, and black pepper.
