Raw Cranberry Relish, Yes or No?

Cranberries, navel orange, a Granny Smith apple, chopped. add 1/2c sugar and stir. Chill.

Some people prefer fresh cranberry sauce, some like the ribbed cylinder of Cranberry jelly from the can. Some put cranberries in a jello mixture. What they remember from childhood.

Cranberry relish, raw. Yes or no?

Or perhaps you don’t like cranberries in any form.

Whizzing By a Yard Full of Lights Near Galion Ohio

Just south of  Galion Ohio.  We were on our way back from Thanksgiving at the Farm.

I was the passenger with my camera at the ready.  James was able to tell me when we were getting close.

Although Laura slowed down, she couldn’t stop.

Not really possible to get a good night photo while driving by this front yard filled with colorful

Christmas lights.

Want to see a better photo of the display? here is a good one in this article in the Galion Inquirer

Nowhere to stop or drive around a block. It was a two lane highway/road.  I pressed the shutter as fast as I could.

You get the idea and can appreciate all the effort this family went to decorating.  WOW. Turns out they have been doing this for twenty years. After reading the article I see they welcome people to drive in through the lighted arches and turn around in front of their garage.  We didn’t realize it at the time we whizzed by.  Maybe there will be another opportunity.

It was something to see, even if the lights went by in a flash. Like an unresolved three D image.

Cranberries Cooked Sauce or Raw Relish?

This post is from Nov 2011

I’m getting the ingredients tomorrow

Do you like cooked fresh cranberry sauce or raw relish? Or neither? Or both? Or the slices of  Cranberry Jelly from a can?

Here’s the 2011 post

ONCE A YEAR RECIPE/RITUAL

The annual making of the cranberry-orange relish. I don’t make this any other time of year.I’ve heard lots of different renditions of cranberries and everyone has their favorite.  My mother used to use a metal meat grinder and screw it onto a table or chair with a woven potholder to keep the wood from being marred. Her recipe was strictly cranberries and navel orange.  I add a Granny Smith and today a HoneyCrisp as well. I used to have one of those grinders and ground relish with Mark when he was a boy in the same manner as my mother.  My friend J from Omaha gave me her MagiMix French Processor when she got a Cuisinart.  That was more than 25 years ago and it still works. It has a European plug so I have to keep a little extra piece to plug it in.  So two bags of cranberries, washed and drained, two oranges, two apples(peel on) 1 3/4 C sugar.

That is all there is to it. Refreshing and tart and sweet simultaneously.  And thanks to Susan K for the Turkey towels.  Very festive.

Happy Thanksgiving.  I will put the bowl in a cardboard box so it doesn’t spill and drive to dinner at the other Grandma’s.
