Holiday cooking begins!


Thanksgiving is just a few days away, and this evening we began the preparations by making one of my favorite family recipes, Cranberry Relish. Actually, the title of this post is misleading, as it requires no actual cooking, just fine chopping in a food processor. Unlike cooked cranberry sauce or jelly, our recipe retains all the tart, fresh flavor of the cranberries, blended with fresh orange, apple, cinnamon, cloves and sugar. The recipe, which I posted last year is HERE. And now is the time to make it, the flavor improves after a few days in the refrigerator. If you’ve never tried it, you’re missing out on the best complement to a holiday feast!

    Interesting recipe — my wife makes a cranberry-orange relish, but it doesn’t have the apples or spices. I think we’ll try it.

    If I could be so humble yet bold to offer to share one of my Thanksgiving traditions (which are usually always literary; I can’t cook a hot dog), have a gander at my blog and, perhaps, take up my offer to add some American literature to your holiday (a blog about Firestorm the Nuclear Man follows that one if your interests lean that way).
