postheadericon Super Simple No Cook Cranberry Relish

Okay, I admit it. As a kid (well, um, as an adult, too…) I was always entertained by the jellied cranberry sauce in a can. Especially when it is released from its tin as a whole log and sliced in rounds to be served up along side “the bird” at holiday meals.  But, my tastes did grow up (some) and I sometimes want something a bit more, shall we say “complex”  in my holiday cranberry offerings.  This super simple, no cook  fresh Cranberry Relish takes the sweet/sour flavors we love in the Coal Region and Pa. Dutch country and brings them together in a side that takes advantage of plentiful fresh cranberries in grocery stores during the final months of the year.  Buy some extra bags when you see them, they freeze beautifully and will allow you to make this relish all year round (goes great with Easter Ham). This relish is no-cook, quick to make, and delicious.
