Adding a simple twist to classic dishes can really give your Thanksgiving meal an appealing boost.

Take cranberry relish for instance… As a little girl I remember it being something that slid out of a can in a jiggling gelatinous mass. (Sorry mom for tattling.) On a good year, whole cranberries were simmered on the stove to create a flavorful, yet mushy jelly.


But why do cranberries have to be cooked down to a preserve consistency?

Yes, they are hard and tart, but they’re also little balls of potential (and antioxidants if not cooked away) just waiting to be discovered.

One thing I’ve learned over the years is that it’s dangerous to get in the way of potential.

So stand back. Today’s Pomegranate Apple Cranberry Relish is a brilliantly perky cranberry recipe with deep and bright flavors. The raw cranberry pieces, diced apple, and pomegranate arils offer pop and crisp texture, while the pomegranate syrup provides rich depth and sweetness!

How much crunch or depth is completely up to you. If you want a bold tangy relish, make this Pomegranate Apple Cranberry Relish on Thanksgiving morning. For a saturated, toned-down cranberry relish make it a few days ahead.

Either way, it’s amazing!

Last year, I ate 90% of this relish all by myself! Half on the first day, while it was nice and poppy, and the rest a couple days later with a chicken salad.

Truth be told, most of it was eaten out of the plastic container as I stood with the refrigerator door open.
