relish the relish

thanksgiving is coming and today was cranberry orange relish day. cranberries, an orange, and a bit of sugar, ground up and left to sit in the fridge for a few days so flavors will meld. i make this every year. my mother made it before me. its thanksgiving tradition. but there are only two of us who like it. and only in small bites and only on t-day itself. so even though i make a little less each year, the leftovers still sit in the refrigerator til new years and my annual resolution to keep the space cleaner and more organized. then it gets thrown out. this happens year after year. its tradition.

Great tradition! Where will you be for Thanksgiving? I'm thinking of making Mama Stamberg's cranberry relish with the horseradish in it... just to be ornery.
