Cranberry Relish

the set-up

I’m not sure when the tradition began, but every year, the week of Thanksgiving we spend one afternoon at Great Grandma Jean’s making cranberry relish. We get out the old hand-crack, the one that was a wedding shower gift for grandma over 65 years ago, hook it on to a stool from Great Great Grandma Ott’s house, and let the relish commence.

It’s so much more about the time spent together than cranberry relish–although it’s tasty too. It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without this treasured tradition!
