Thanksgiving Leftovers: Cranberry Orange Sour Cream Oatmeal Muffins

Cranberry Orange Relish
You need:
1 bag fresh cranberries
2 cans mandarin oranges (with syrup)
1 package jello of your choice (I used sugar free orange)

Put it all in a pot and simmer until saucy and starts setting.  I randomly mash and stir.

I transfer 1/2 to my mini crockpot (to serve warm)
The other 1/2 I blend in my Vita-Mix and put in the fridge (to serve cold)

With the leftovers:

Cranberry Orange Sour Cream Oatmeal Muffins
Gather your ingredients:

2 11oz cans mandarin oranges (drained)
Leftover cranberry orange relish
2 cup oats
1 c sour cream or yogurt
Let sit 10-15 mins

Add & mix well:
2/3 c shortening (or 1/2 cup applesauce & 1/4 cup oil)
1 c brown sugar
1/2 c white sugar
2 eggs
2 2/3 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder

Fold in 1 bag {frozen} fresh cranberries.

These are VERY tart.  If you would prefer a sweeter taste, up the white sugar to 1 cup and the brown sugar to 1 1/2 cups.

Bake @ 350 degrees for 25 mins.  Test with a toothpick to come out clean. 

Makes 24 muffins and 2 small loaves.
