What fun! We’re posting 2 different cranberry relish recipes today. Check them out and let us know if you pick one to grace your Thanksgiving table!
1. Cranberry Sauce with Dried Cherries and Cassis
I love that this sauce is a little different than many of the relishes out there which typically rely on a cranberry and orange combination. The finished product is a sweet but definitely savory side dish. The richness from the creme de cassis reduces in the pan and melds perfectly with the sweetness of the cherries. Add tang from the shallots and cranberries, and you have the perfect companion for turkey. I am especially excited to slather this on leftovers in sandwiches. Make this sauce a few weeks ahead of time, pop it in the freezer, and you’ll have one less thing to make the week of Thanksgiving. What’s not to love?
2. Cranberry Serrano Relish
This cranberry sauce from Bobby Flay is bright and smooth with a subtle heat. It is full of complex flavors and will add a new twist to your turkey day meal without overpowering it. The flavors of the red onion, serrano pepper and cranberries really develop and complement one another after a few days. Such a fun find and the earlier this is crossed off the to-do list, the better. This year, there will be something for everyone at Thanksgiving, savory or spicy.
