National Cranberry Relish Day
The sweetness of cranberry sauce is well-known, but what about adding horseradish to the cranberries? Although it might not sound appealing, National Cranberry Relish Day celebrates this unique side dish. You can read more about the history of this sweet and spicy side dish to find out how you can make it yourself.
It is believed that cranberry relish was first made in New England in the early 1900s. The recipe was not published until the 1950s. American Public Media’s radio program, The Splendid Table (which broadcast the original recipe), has been instrumental in spreading the word. It has been around since 1950. Lynne Rossetto, the original host of the show, brought in many chefs from all over the world to share their unique and delicious recipes with her audience.
Susan Stamberg, a Splendid Table member, called in one morning to share her recipe. Kasper and her discussed the ideas in great detail and described what they would do to make it delicious and unusual. Mama Stamberg’s Cranberry Relish was born.
The recipe isn’t very tasty but it can be a great way to surprise people during Thanksgiving. Horseradish is added to cranberry relish along with other ingredients like onions and sour-cream. This makes it different from other cranberry sauces.
This recipe has been a major inspiration for this holiday. Many people are now looking to spice up their Thanksgiving with this delicious and spicy treat.
Mama Stamberg’s Cranberry Relish recipe will make your dinner more exciting. Start by adding 2 cups of whole washed Cranberries and 1 onion to the mixture.
