Now it's Thanksgiving. I've made the traditional Cranberry Relish. It's only been a tradition for 20 years, a blink of an eye in Jones years, but it's a tradition all the same. I love this recipe for Cranberries and wanted to share it with you. But it's really not a recipe. There is not much to it and there really isn't a way to mess it up.
Now here's the tricky part. You have to have this old-fashioned, hand-cranked, food grinder to do the job right. Newer is not always better. This food grinder belonged to my grandmother and I love it! It works great!
But before you start foraging antique stores for one for yourself, let me tell you they are still in production and you can purchase them in several locations. I believe I saw them for sale at the Curious Gourmet on Main Street in Franklin last I looked.
Add a quarter cup of sugar or so and mix well.
I like to make this a day ahead of time and let the flavors marry before serving.
