Cranberry-orange holiday relish

 Welcome the holidays to your table with this refreshing side dish that will compliment any holiday meal. Cranberries are not only delicious, they’re healthy, but make sure that when you’re in the grocery store, minimize your pesticide exposure by choosing organic cranberries!

The Research

Conventional cranberry bogs rely on a large number of insecticides, fungicides and fertilizers during fruit production. In fact, a 2008 report found that cranberries had the highest dietary risk index score across all tested domestically grown fruits due to both the number of chemicals used and the toxicity of those chemicals.
