Gingered Cranberry-Raspberry Relish

From: EatingWell Magazine, October/November 2006

Unlike cranberry sauce, a relish involves no cooking. Here, plump raspberries add a juicy freshness, while crystallized ginger provides sweetness and warmth. It is best served cold. Hold the mayo on your post-holiday sandwiches—use this relish instead for a real treat.

This recipe is a classic! No more canned cranberry sauce for us. My daughter introduced this year's ago and we love it! This year I played around a bit, I boiled the cranberries for just a few seconds until they popped then added the ginger and sugar. Once it cooled a bit, I added raspberries and blackberries. I love it! It is softer and creamier and bet my grands go nuts over it!

This is a good side dish as well as relish. It is very refreshing to eat alone. I have also substituted blackberries for the raspberries and it is just as good and gives it a nice contrasting color. I broke them up as I stirred so they blended in well. I also pulse the ginger with the cranberries so it's blended in more thoroughly.

I added only a 1/4 C of sugar since my crystallized ginger was already very sugary (Ginger People brand), and it came out a bit tart but I prefer it that way, especially at Thanksgiving when everything else on the plate is so rich. Make it ahead so you can adjust to taste.
