Turkey Breast With Cranberry Relish
(First star is lowest, fourth star is highest)
I recently explored cooking a turkey breast in the microwave and was amazed that not only did it cook in under 30 minutes, but it was as succulent as one that roasts for close to 2 hours. I paired it with a raw cranberry-orange relish jazzed up with fresh ginger to add depth of flavor. Many markets carry fresh cranberries year-round in the freezer section.
Hands on time: Total time: 30 minutes Serves: 6-8
1 (3 1/2- to 4-pound) bone-in half turkey breast
2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
1/2 orange, cut into 4 pieces
1-inch square fresh ginger, cut into 4 pieces
1/3 to 1/2 cup granulated sugar
Meanwhile, in a food processor fitted with a steel blade, pulse cranberries, orange and ginger until chopped. Transfer to a bowl and stir in 1/3 cup sugar. Taste and add sugar as needed.
Serve turkey with relish on the side.
