While driving to work this morning and listening to NPR "Morning Edition" as usual, I heard an unusual "Cranberry Relish" recipe, recited by Martha Stewart, that at first utterly repulsed me. But the more I thought about it...the more I realized it wanted to try it out. I mean if Martha says it's good....i kind of have to think that it IS good.

So here we go

MAMA STAMBERG'S CRANBERRY RELISH




2 cups whole raw cranberries, washed

1 small onion

3/4 cup sour cream

1/2 cup sugar

2 T. horseradish from a jar (red is a bit milder than white)

1-Grind the raw berries and onion together. (I use an old-fashioned meat grinder. I'm sure there's a setting on the food processor that will give you a chunky grind -- NOT a puree)

2-Add everything else and mix.

3-Put in a plastic container and freeze.

Early Thanksgiving morning, move it from freezer to refrigerator compartment to thaw. (It should still have some little icy slivers left.)

The relish will be thick, creamy, and shocking pink (OK, Pepto Bismol pink). Tangy taste that cuts through and perks up the turkey and gravy. Also good on next-day turkey sandwiches. And with roast beef!

Makes 1-1/2 pints.

it's perfect for any holiday and brightens up any table. (it's even good without the sour cream for those lactose intollerent days.)
