Fifty-nine. Fifty-nine Thanksgiving food baskets went out to needy families on Saturday morning. That was the official count as we wrapped up around 10:30 on a frosty, clear morning and I went home to scald myself in a hot shower until I was back from the brink of hypothermia and ready to collapse for a few hours, which of course was not to be, because it’s the holiday season and there are always more things that need doing than time to do them.
It’s the season to celebrate abundance, and as we’ve been planning our Thanksgiving Day menu, the shopping list has grown long. I considered trying a new cranberry sauce recipe—something sensational that would really knock everyone’s socks off–yours included, dear readers. But the truth is, I think I’ve already hit the zenith of cranberriosity with my Sissy’s Cranberry Relish recipe.
So rather than reinventing the wheel, I will be making this savory cranberry sauce again this year, and I think it’s also worth sharing the recipe again. Because really, it’s perfect. And if this cranberry relish doesn’t knock your socks off, someone had better check your pulse.
