Mama Stamberg's Cranberry Relish

March 27, 2011
Author Notes

I first heard the original recipe for this on NPR via correspondent Susan Stamberg. Later, however, I found out that Susan's mother-in-law had received the New York Times. The original is fantastic, but can have orange zest, or pecans added if desired.
Now, our family serves it at ever Thanksgiving, along with a more traditional version, for those put off by the fantastic color. At first everyone is scared of it, but after a taste, they are usually reformed. —slulibby
