    This homemade Cranberry Relish recipe is perfect for your Turkey Day festivities and will soon be a must-have every holiday season.

    As I started hosting my own Thanksgiving, I began to realize how many Thanksgiving foods I used to turn my nose up at. Aside from stuffing and turkey, Cranberry Relish was another one.

    Cranberry Relish’s tart taste didn’t really pique my interest. I did, however, love the way the jellied kind slinked out of the can in one gelatinous mass. My mother used to have the “lumpy” and “smooth” kind to cater to everyone.

    In my own kitchen, I try to make as much from scratch as I can and although I’m sure I can fashion my own smooth cranberry torpedo, I now prefer the texture of the “lumpy kind.”

    What I have come to appreciate is how much the tart flavor of cranberry sauce or relish can refresh your taste buds. It’s a little break from all the really rich deliciousness on the plate and gets your mouth ready for the next bite.

    That goes for other meals and not just Thanksgiving. This batch was destined for two dishes and one condiment.

    I topped my Spiced Pork Tenderloin, froze some for my Thanksgiving Day spread and also made Cranberry Mayo for leftover Turkey Roll-Ups.

    Not only that, but you can use the liquid drain-off for Cranberry Syrup, which tastes amazing on waffles, pancakes, and even vanilla ice cream!
