I decided to take the advice of a previous reviewer and not use all of the orange rind. I doubled the recipe, and only used the rind of about half of the first orange. I used cara cara oranges, which are significantly sweeter than most others, and it actually turned out sweeter than when I made the cranberry raspberry sauce for Thanksgiving. I could not find ginger crystals, so I used fresh spearmint from my plant outside and it fit together perfectly.

I made this relish to accompany thanksgiving dinner tomorrow; it's beautiful (the red, white and orange look gorgeous together), but with the unpeeled orange it's very orangey! I would recommend using grated peel rather than whole, unpeeled slices, and perhaps upping the amount of ginger used.
I just found this recipe this morning in search of a healthy cranberry-orange relish which I love, but with less sugar (many call for 1 c.) and alas I have all ingredients on hand, so I made this in my Champ HP3 blender and I really like it. I'm taking it to a dinner tonight and decided to make another batch as I anticipate it will be well received and won't have any leftovers.
