Cranberry Plus Relish
Friends who own a cranberry bog treated us to freshly harvested cranberries. They were so pretty and tasty that I was determined to use them for something besides plain cranberry relish. I started out with a basic cranberry/orange relish and worked with it until I came up with this recipe. I've found that even folks who don't particularly care for plain cranberries seem to "relish" this side dish.
