Thanksgiving or Christmas or anytime Cranberries

This is the best cranberry relish recipe I have ever found. I saw it a long time ago in a Better Homes & Garden magazine. This is Trey’s favorite thing at Thanksgiving. He said forget the Turkey Mom just give me the cranberries.

So you start with a good ‘ol bag of cranberries.

Wash those bad boys up and throw them in a pot. Then you take a few of these delicious Satsuma tangerines and juice ‘em up. It’s about a 1/2 cup of juice.

Then you add a 1/2 cup or 3/4 cup of sugar depending on how sweet you like things. And you bring all that to a boil. Let those cranberries pop.

And you let them keep on boiling and popping.

I usually let them go for 10 minutes or so let get soft. Then you add a bag of frozen raspberries.

I stir the raspberries around until they de-freeze. Is that a word, de-freeze?

Then you poor them into a container that you can cover. I usually make these the day before Thanksgiving. It’s usually the first thing I make because they are quick and easy and it makes me feel like I’m making progress in my cooking extravaganza.
